Welcome to the 2020 Spring Undergraduate Research & Creative Achievements Forum! This has been an interesting time for us all and we appreciate everyone's patience and understanding as we transitioned the Forum to be online. In this section of the Forum you will find a welcome video from UM System President and MU Interim Chancellor Dr. Mun Choi. We also celebrate and recognize our Undergraduate Research Mentors of the Year, the MU Libraries Undergraduate Research Paper awardees, students who were selected to present their research to state and national officials, and our student ambassadors.
