Welcome to CU-Prime!

CU-Prime is a student-led, diversity-focused, and community-oriented organization in the physics department. Our goal is to improve the culture of physics at CU Boulder through equity and inclusion, allyship, and education. We offer three programs for undergraduate students:
  • A semester-long academic class for first year students about what it looks like to do science.
  • Bi-weekly research talks led by grad students that promote networking and awareness of research happening at CU.
  • A long-term mentoring program that connects new physics students to graduate students and upper division undergraduate students.


CU-Prime is a proud member of the Access Network.
