RISE Events

Connect with RISE at a variety of informational and special events throughout the year.

Information Sessions provide an opportunity to meet RISE leadership, learn about the program and courses, and find out if our program is right for you. You can even register for courses while you are there. Information Sessions are offered prior to the start of each semester in the fall and spring.
