RISE Program (Resilient Individuals Succeeding in Education)

The RISE Program is focused on increasing completion rates amongst underserved student populations.  Through mentorship, leadership development, and civic engagement this program provides both academic support and professional growth for its participants.  The use of faculty and staff mentors provides a more student-centered, academic advising opportunity, which increases student retention.  Partnerships with community organizations provides participants the opportunity to positively contribute to their communities.
