The Undergraduate Research Office is excited to launch the Pathway to Research Program<https://urca.msu.edu/learn> for Fall 2021, which is a 5-week staff- and peer-mentored program designed to help students secure a research position in their respective field of interest. Student participants will work with program advisors to accomplish the following outcomes:

* Explore and identify potential fields in which they are interested

* Identify potential research mentors

* Learn how to effectively communicate and interview with potential research mentors

* Secure a research position

All students are welcome to apply, and there are no major or GPA restrictions. We are trying to recruit students from historically excluded populations as well as transfer students.

The program will run two phases with the first cohort beginning in late September and the second cohort in mid-October. Students wishing to participate in the program should complete this survey https://msu.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_a34Dr8Maca0a8ey by September 17.

2 Day Venture: The Future of Media @ Edward J. Minskoff Pavilion | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

2 Day Venture (2DV) is a hands-on learning experience for Spartans, regardless of home college, major, or background. Each event offers unbeatable entrepreneurial education resources & opportunities to explore how to turn an idea into a venture. In just 36 hours, go from small-group collaboration to idea fruition. By the end of Day 2, each team pitches their venture idea to a group of judges for a chance to win $500 in seed funding! 2DV encourages students of all majors, skillsets, & experience levels to embrace the entrepreneurial mindset. For students enrolled in the Minor in Entrepreneurship & Innovation, 2DV qualifies as a required high-impact experience toward the Minor.

No Idea? No Problem!

Students don’t have to have a venture idea to participate in 2DV! Before the event, students will have an opportunity to choose which venture idea they like the most & can join their team! 2 Day Venture is designed for Spartans to create & build a new venture with a team, not by themselves.

Broad Underground Film Series @ MSU Broad
Sep 17 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Broad Underground Film Series @ MSU Broad | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Broad Underground Film Series: An exploration of Video Art and Experimental and Avant-Garde film from its earliest developments to the present day.

Broad Art Museum Sculpture Garden
Free to the public

Co-programmed by Justus Nieland and McKayla Sluga
As archives of private memories, home movies offer intimate glimpses into personal and family life. They provide a space of self-portraiture and nostalgia, but also opportunities for fantasy, play, and critique—for imagining different modes of dwelling. Many filmmakers have turned to the “amateur” genre of the home movie as a site of experimentation with the routines, normative roles, and restrictive politics of domestic life. Intersecting with themes in the 2021 AAHD Faculty Triennial: Where We Dwell, this program explores a series of innovative takes on the concept of the “home movie.” Ranging from canonical works of the avant-garde and contemporary essay films to amateur, educational, and sponsored films, our program features experiments in dwelling that open this “private” genre into a public, even ecological space for imagining community and building solidarity. Featured filmmakers include: Cheryl Dunye, Helen Hill, Sky Hopinka, Guy Maddin, Jan Oxenberg, Elisa Giardina Papa, and Andy Warhol.

Broad Underground is an ongoing collaboration between the MSU Broad, the Film Studies Program and the Department of English at MSU, and The Robin Theatre in REO Town, Lansing. Special thanks to the Lansing Public Media Center for their continued support.
