The URCA Abstract is a monthly eNewsletter distributed by the Undergraduate Research Office to the campus community. The newsletter began in 2012 as a printed piece called UR@MSU. Today, the primary audience for the newsletter are faculty research mentors, academic advisors, and staff members that engage with undergraduate students interested in research and creative scholarship.
