Who We Are

The Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Engagement (CURCE) serves as a resource for undergraduate students interested in finding challenging research, scholarship, and creative activities that match their academic interests and career goals. We are open to students from all majors: from the sciences, to the social sciences, to the arts and humanities.

Two students talking at the Undergraduate Research Forum. We are here to assist you in identifying research, scholarship, and creative activities across the University at Albany. We help you navigate the application process for research positions, and develop skills that will benefit you as you add a unique experience to your time at the University at Albany. We look forward to working with you as you strive to meet your goals.
