RISE to the Challenge

The IUPUI RISE initiative engages students more deeply in their learning and contributes to their intellectual and professional development in unique ways.

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. Completion of all four RISE experiences is required for Honors College students to become RISE Scholars.

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.
