Message from the Editor In Chief

As Editor-In-Chief, I’d like to welcome you to the website for the Red Cedar Undergraduate Research Journal (ReCUR) and hope you will explore how undergraduate students, faculty, alumni and friends engage with high-quality research and creative works conducted here at Michigan State University.

ReCUR was founded by the Michigan State University Honors College in 2009 to provide an outlet for a set of multi-disciplinary student research and creative works to be published, as well as give students the ability to learn about the editorial process. The students published in ReCUR have gone on to a range of experiences, including graduate school and becoming emerging leaders in their fields and communities.

The website is also a source of information for faculty to connect their students with a publication, provide blind review of student’s work prior to publication, or participate on the Editorial Board.

For alumni and friends, we hope you will enjoy reading about the academic pursuits of the students, get some insights into the various areas of scholarly activity and consider supporting this publication through a donation or signing up as an organizational or corporate sponsor.
