Undergraduate Research

  • The ability to take part in individually mentored research and creative activity is one of the unique advantages MSU Moorhead offers students. Faculty-student mentored activity is a valuable part of our mission and is reflected in the University’s strategic priorities:

    • To provide real-world opportunities for students to apply learning
    • To connect students, faculty and staff in meaningful relationships with one another and the community


    The resources on this page are designed to help you navigate the many opportunities that exist for collaboration and success.
