What is Venture?

Venture is MSU's database of creative activity and undergraduate research opportunities designed to connect faculty mentors and aspiring undergraduate scholars. The database provides an easily navigable platform for MSU faculty members to post research projects while offering an on-line venue for students to look for research opportunities.

Who should use it?

MSU undergraduate students should utilize Venture to help them find research positions at MSU and off-campus summer resarch positions.  MSU faculty, graduate students, and post-docs should use Venture to post research positions.
