Colby Undergraduate Summer Research Retreat


The Colby Undergraduate Summer Research Retreat (CUSRR) is a two-day symposium and retreat in The Forks, Maine, featuring student talks and poster presentations on a wide variety of topics.

Focused research and other scholarly activities abound on the Colby College campus during the summer months. These endeavors advance the levels of scholarship at Colby and strengthen the engagement between students and faculty. The Colby Undergraduate Summer Research Retreat serves as the capstone event to the summer experience on Mayflower Hill. All students involved in scholarly activity on campus are invited to participate in CUSRR.


We are delighted to announce that the keynote speaker for CUSRR 2019 will be Prof. Timothy Bertram ’00, Associate Professor of Chemistry and Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Wisconsin! CUSRR 2019 will take place on Aug 1-2.
