Venture: The UM Undergraduate Research Journal is a yearly double-blind, peer-reviewed publication of research written by UM students from all disciplines. The journal is a student publication featuring an all undergraduate editorial board with support from a team of graduate student advisors.

We provide an opportunity for students to experience the review and publication process firsthand. “Venture” embodies what we think drives new and dynamic scholarship: the courage to take risks, explore the unknown, and chart a new path.
