The SCoRe (Summer Collaborative Research) Symposium is the culminating event after a summer of collaborative research conducted by Colorado College students and faculty. It brings students, faculty, and family together for a series of short presentations, poster sessions, and discussions across a variety of academic disciplines. The collaborative research presented is funded by the Provost’s Office Faculty Student Collaborative Grant, departmental funds, other internal grants, and external research grants.
Starting in 2018, the Symposium expanded to include summer internships as well as summer research experiences to become the Student Research & Internship Symposium.
The 2020 Student Research & Internship Symposium will be held on September 25, 2020 on Friday of Family and Friends Weekend.
