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
