Student Groups

There are a number of different student groups in the Department of Computer Science:

InnovateCU (was CSUAC)

InnovateCU is comprised of current Computer Science undergraduate students as well as other interested students who want to make improvements to the undergraduate Computer Science program.  Click here to learn more!

Computer Science Graduate Student Colloquium

Each week a student from one of the different CS labs will discuss their current research.  These talks are geared to foster communication between the CS labs, help students learn about the research projects of each lab, and give students a friendly environment to practice their presentation skills. Students that receive a Department Travel Stipend will be encouraged to sign up and present at one of the talks after the funded event.  A sign-up sheet will be provided at the first event for anyone wanting to give a talk.

Pizza and refreshments will be provided after each presentation, and an award for the best talk will be given at the end of the academic year.

CU ACM Student Chapter (CUACM)

The CU ACM Student Chapter (CUACM) is an official student chapter for the national Association for Computing Machinery. CUACM provides a community for CU students interested in computer science to explore the field and develop professional connections through participation in collegiate competitions, industry talks, and social events.

CU Game Development Club

The CU Game Development Club is for students interested in video game programming, art, modeling, and design. During meetings, we work on club projects, present game development tutorials, help with members' personal projects, and sometimes just play games.

CU Hacking Club

Interested in Computer Security? Cryptography? Social Engineering? Hacking Competitions? Join the CU Hacking Club! We meet on a regular basis to discus a variety of computer security topics, techniques, and tutorials. Some of us also participate in various hacking competitions during the year. All skill levels and backgrounds welcome. Come learn about how computer systems can be attacked and what you can do to defend them. For more info or to stay up to date on our happenings, apply for membership to our mailing list at!forum/cu-hackers or email

CU Women in Computing (CUWIC)

CU Women in Computing (CUWIC) is the ACM-W chapter within the Computer Science Department at the University of Colorado Boulder. CUWIC is dedicated to supporting women and diversity in computing.
