Student Research Opportunities

One of the ways Colorado College creates a superb liberal arts learning environment is to support student research experiences. Our research-active faculty scholars mentor students in collaborative research during the academic year, as well as in the summer. During summer research students also participate in co-curricular educational programming to further support their learning. For an appointment please contact Lisa Schwartz, Student Opportunities Manager.
