Out in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics @ the University of Colorado, Boulder is a 501(c)(3) non-profit professional society focused on LGBTQ people in the STEM community.

oSTEM at the University of Colorado Boulder (formerly Student Alliance of GLBT Engineers or SAGE) provides networking opportunities, professional development, social events, and safe space for the LGBTQ+ CU Boulder community in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields. 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.
