Since its inception, the College of Arts & Letters -- Undergraduate Research Initiative (CAL-URI) has provided financial support for more than 100 undergraduate researchers.Most often, undergraduates are invited by Arts and Letters faculty to participate in the faculty member's research or creative endeavor, although, on occasion, students approach faculty with their own research plans. CAL-URI also provides workshop support for students who plan to present their research at the annual MSU University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum (UURAF).
