2023 Mid-Michigan Symposium for Undergraduate Research Experiences (Mid-SURE)

The 13th annual Mid-SURE will be held on Wednesday, July 26, 2023 at the STEM Teaching and Learning Facility (tentative) and online at Symposium by ForagerOne. Registration will tentatively open on May 30 and close on June 20, 2023.


Mid-SURE 2023 will be a hybrid event with both in-person and virtual poster presentations, held on July 26 from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM. The event is free and open to the public.

Students must register to present by June 20 at 11:59 PM Eastern. Registration ensures a presentation slot in the preferred modality. Abstracts do not need to be complete at the time of registration. Final edits to your registration and abstract will be due in late June. MSU students must complete Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training prior to the event.

MSU undergraduate researchers, visiting students participating in research at MSU, and students from regional institutions are eligible to present at the Mid-Michigan Symposium for Undergraduate Research Experiences (Mid-SURE). Current MSU students and May 2023 graduates are also eligible to present at Mid-SURE. Incoming MSU students (first year or transfer) who complete New Student Orientation (NSO) before July 26 may participate as well. This event provides an opportunity for students involved in research and creative activities at Michigan State and select institutions to share their work with their peers, faculty, and external audiences.

All stages of research and creative scholarship are welcomed--from preliminary to capstone projects and everywhere in between! Research and creative activity conducted during courses, internship/REU, Education Abroad, or community-based participatory research are also accepted. Research is a process. Share with the university community where you are in that process when you present at Mid-SURE.


Michigan State University is committed to providing equal opportunity for participation in all programs, services and activities. Direct requests for accommodations to Heather Dover, Coordinator for Undergraduate Research (doverhea@msu.edu, 517-884-1558). Requests received after July 17, 2023 will be honored whenever possible.
