The Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) is a gateway to graduate education at Michigan State University (MSU). The goal of the program is to increase the number of domestic undergraduate students who pursue graduate study and careers in teaching and research at colleges and universities. MSU SROP helps prepare undergraduate students for graduate study through intensive research experiences with faculty mentors and academic enrichment activities.
The Center for Statistical Training and Consulting (CSTAT) is a professional service and research unit at Michigan State University. Our aim is to support research and provide training and consulting in statistics for faculty, staff and graduate students through one-on-one consulting and training workshops. We also provide statistical consulting to non-MSU clients for a fee.
MSU graduate students, postdocs, and faculty can participate in discussions and programs associated with teaching and learning by engaging with the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL). CIRTL is an NSF-funded, national network of 22 universities collaborating to enhance the preparation of future educators in science-based disciplines. Local and network-wide opportunities for coursework, workshops, and exchanges are available throughout the academic year. To participate go to: https://www.cirtl.net/.
The goal of the Responsible Conduct of Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities program is to prepare graduate students and researchers to become globally-engaged citizen leaders. Central to achieving this goal is the ability to conduct quality research/scholarship/creative activity. With the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation, The Graduate School offers a workshop series that highlights key principles of research integrity and emphasizes that research and scholarly integrity is a fundamental characteristic of quality research/scholarship/creative activity in all disciplines.

The Office of the Senior Vice President for Research and Innovation, in concert with the Office of the Provost, is responsible for recruiting outstanding faculty through MSU's Global Impact Initiative, and maintaining synergy between research and creative scholarship and the education of graduate students through The Graduate School.
