Undergrads to Present Research Online and In-Person at 24th Annual UURAF

Michigan State University’s 24th annual University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum (UURAF) will take place Friday, April 8, at the Breslin Student Events Center as well as online. The forum will include poster, oral, performance, and film/exhibit presentations.   
UURAF provides MSU students, from every major, with an opportunity to showcase their scholarship and creative activity while gaining experience presenting their research, answering questions about their work, and receiving constructive feedback from judges.  

Held each spring, UURAF brings together an intellectual community of highly motivated students to share their work with faculty, staff, peers, and external audiences. The event provides a unique educational opportunity for aspiring researchers.  

For this year’s online presentation, there will be both asynchronous and synchronous options. Meanwhile, the exhibits, films, oral presentations, performances, and posters will be presented asynchronously.
