Becoming a RISE scholar

In order to become a RISE scholar, students must complete at least two of the four RISE experiences: research, international, service learning, and experiential learning.

RISE courses involve students in conducting research or artistic work under the mentorship of a faculty member. Students will be able to travel and to learn outside the United States as well as engage in guided reflection on the cross-cultural elements of the experience.
