The St. Olaf Collaborative Undergraduate Research and Inquiry (CURI) program provides opportunities for St. Olaf students from all academic disciplines to gain an in-depth understanding of a particular subject through working closely with a St. Olaf faculty member in a research framework.

We aim to promote and facilitate undergraduate research in all its forms by supporting students and faculty with various research opportunities during both the summer and the academic year, and by providing funding for students to present the results of their research at conferences or in other appropriate venues.

You’re invited!

CURI 2018 summer researchers present their findings at our closing symposium on the morning of Friday, August 3, 2018, in the Tomson Hall Atrium from 8:20-11:50.  Peruse the full CURI 2018 Final Symposium Schedule for project abstracts, times, and place for each research team.
