Uncommon research opportunities at FLC
Unique to higher education, undergraduates can conduct original research in all majors across campus. You can design projects, support faculty on theirs, and learn from their expertise.
In the process, you’ll develop creativity and independent thought, learn to ask questions, problem-solve, analyze, and communicate your findings to others. You can write grants and present your findings on campus and at local, regional, or national conferences.

Connect with staff, faculty, and peers at events throughout the semester including our Speaker Series, Grad Plus Fair, and symposium.
You’ll learn by doing at many stages in your time at FLC. Most seniors complete capstone projects such as working with a faculty member to understand the ancient volcanoes of the San Juan Mountains, exploring the relationship between the history of uranium mining and the establishment of Canyonlands National Park, or writing and producing a new theatrical performance.
Every spring, a selection of students present their work at the Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities Symposium, and can submit their work to be published through the online journal, Metamorphosis.

Research is impacted by the researcher. In an effort to increase the breadth and diversity of researchers’ backgrounds, and create a more inclusive scientific knowledge base, a variety of grant and scholarship opportunities are available to students of color.
Faculty mentors at FLC train a small group of highly qualified junior and senior under-represented students in an honors program strong in research opportunities and science curriculum for careers in biomedical or behavioral science research.
Pathways to Science supports students of underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields with programs, funding, mentoring and other resources.
