Summer Research Opportunities Program at Michigan State University

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.

Center for Statistical Training and Consulting

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.

Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL)

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: http://www.cirtl.net/.

Responsible Conduct of Research and Creative Activities (RCR)

The goal of the Responsible Conduct of Research and Creative Activities program is to prepare researchers to become globally-engaged citizenleaders. Central to achieving this goal is the ability to conduct quality research/scholarship. With the Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies, we offer 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 in all disciplines.

2016-17 CARMA (Consortium for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis) Webcast Program

Michigan State University has an institutional membership for the CARMA Webcast Program. A library of previously recorded lectures can be found at: https://razor.med.und.edu/carma/video. All faculty and students from member universities will have individual access to these recorded lectures at any time from any machine, as long as they are registered CARMA Website Users. Sign-up to be a Website User.

For an organization that is a member of the 2016-2017 CARMA Consortium Webcast Program, all faculty and students are eligible to view, as a group, a series of ten live webcast lectures presented by nationally recognized methodologists. These lectures are developed at an introductory and advanced doctoral student level and will typically include an introduction to the topic as well as a consideration of current technical issues. Emphasis is placed on the application of the research method technique. Prior to each lecture, background readings, references, and powerpoint slides for the presentation will be available on the CARMA website.

Please contact Mikala Rioux, 517-353-3231, in the Graduate School for information on group viewing of live broadcasts.
