RISE Above

(Research Increases Student Engagement)

Updated Fall 2013

Beginning spring 2013, the college implements a quality enhancement program that seeks to significantly increase the number of students who participate in undergraduate research.

Students seeking to pursue undergraduate research for credit will identify a faculty mentor who will support and facilitate the research initiative, including the completion of one or more courses in which research is the focus. These “RISE” courses are available across the college’s academic offerings.

See the “Course Descriptions” section of this catalog for the academic disciplines in which RISE courses are offered (Courses are numbered 499A, 499B, and 499C.).
