The Campaign for Siena College



Mentoring the next generation through the education of a lifetime.

The goal of the Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity (CURCA) is to distinguish Siena College as an institution that values both classroom and high-impact experiential learning. Siena has a culture of faculty and student engagement in the form of undergraduate research, scholarship and creative activity. Working with faculty mentors, students in Siena’s schools of Liberal Arts, Science and Business are using research to uncover their passion while developing skills they will use to pursue it. This student-faculty partnership distinguishes Siena as an institution valuing high experiential learning both in and out of the classroom with challenging research projects that push boundaries and expand world-views.

  • Approximately 100 students per year engaged in undergraduate research and creative activity
  • Students work under the guidance of faculty mentors
  • Students travel to national and international conferences to present research
