Approximately 545 students from 14 of Michigan State's colleges presented nearly 400 oral and poster presentations at the 2013 Forum. Held in the MSU Union, UURAF provides students with an opportunity to showcase their scholarship and creative activity. Held each spring in the historic MSU Union, UURAF ("you-raf") brings together an intellectual community of highly motivated students to share their work with faculty, peers, and external audiences. UURAF provides a unique educational opportunity for aspiring researchers. MSU undergraduates gain experience in presenting their research, answer questions about their work from audience members and guests, and receive constructive feedback from judges. At the 2013 Forum, nearly 85 graduate student evaluators provided student presenters with additional opportunities to receive feedback. A complete list of award recipients is available on the bottom of the 2013 UURAF page.

This workshop will cover ethics and responsible conduct and their impact on research and scholarship. The goal is to ensure that students are informed to protect their personal, educational, and career development interests that can easily be harmed through irresponsible acts and to support their effectiveness in collaborating with more senior researchers. Topics related to authorship and data management will also be discussed.
