What is oSTEM @ the University of Colorado Boulder?

oSTEM at the University of Colorado Boulder provides networking opportunities, professional development, social events, and a safe space for the LGBTQ+ STEM students at CU Boulder. We are a chapter of the national organization oSTEM Inc. and are housed in the BOLD Center in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. We are also a Registered Student Organization (RSO) with the Center for Student Involvement on campus. 

Whether it's DIY sundae bars, bath bombs, wearable technology, or queer-e-oke nights, oSTEM does it all. Our general meetings occur weekly and consist of a mix of community, social, academic, and professional development events. Our meetings are open to all members of the CU Boulder community.
