Student Opportunities

Students at Mountain Research StationNumerous opportunities exist for students to get involved with the Mountain Research Station.  The station hosts upper division, undergraduate field courses designed to give students hands-on experience and training in advanced research techniques.  The courses have low enrollment to provide students with extensive individual attention. 

The station has been the site of a National Science Foundation sponsored Research Experiences for Undergraduates program for over a decade.  

In addition, courses from the CU Boulder campus and other universities use the station for instruction in environmental science at the K-12, undergraduate, and graduate levels.
