Rivier Institute for Senior Education (RISE)

Teach for RISE

Dear Prospective RISE Facilitator:

The Rivier Institute for Senior Education (RISE) provides facilitators an opportunity to intellectually engage adult learners who have a passion for learning. Facilitators offer course structure and guidance. In addition, they create an atmosphere of trust and safety in discussion and assist in the management of the exchange of ideas, information and opinions. At RISE, there are no grades, no credit, and no tests. RISE members truly appreciate their courses and the expertise of the facilitators.

Members of the community, from teachers to artists to professional chefs, and RISE members can facilitate a class. An honorarium to facilitate a class for RISE is $105 per course.
RISE offers two semesters per year: Fall (September – November), and Spring (February – April). Courses meet once per week, for either five or ten weeks, 90 minutes per class.

Courses at RISE are as varied as the people who teach them; facilitators can draw upon their life studies, expertise, and interests to create courses that are stimulating and informational. You can always glance at past brochures to get ideas on what has been done before, and what areas you can uniquely explore!

If you are interested in facilitating a course for RISE, please download, complete, and submit the course proposal form.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would to learn more about RISE. I can be reached at (603) 897-8623 or dwinter@rivier.edu.
