Ambassadors

2014-2015 Undergraduate Research Ambassadors

Undergraduate Research Ambassadors

The Undergraduate Research Ambassador program prepares current undergraduate researchers to facilitate workshops, assist at UURAF, and provide feedback to the UR staff on current and proposed program offerings.

While the UR Office sponsors Ambassador-led workshops each semester, the Ambassadors are also frequently invited to present during class periods and student academic society meetings. Please contact the Undergraduate Research Office by phone at 517-884-1559 or email ugrsrch@msu.edu if you are interested in bringing the Ambassadors to your class or to arrange for a presentation.
