A course based undergraduate research experience (CURE) is a popular, high-impact pedagogical approach, however many do not find their way into traditional research labs. Course-Based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs) are an alternative that can serve all students, including those who may have implicit barriers to seeking position in a research lab, or who have jobs or financial constraints that prohibit them from devoting a significant amount of time to research. In this symposium, we want to hear from faculty who have developed and/or implemented CUREs in chemistry. Faculty in the early stages of developing a CURE are welcome to present course design and plans for implementation. Faculty who have already run the CURE are invited to share all aspects of the course, including what worked well, and obstacles (both expected and unexpected) that arose.
