The RISE Program and the Center for Teaching and Learning have created a series of workshops for the 2017-18 academic year to introduce faculty/staff to the taxonomy guides and share more widely the value of HIPs. Presenters will include but not be limited to those who participated in the creation of the taxonomies, members of the RISE Community of Practice, and instructors who have successfully used them.Explore Workshops
I loved my experience abroad, and I love being able to talk about it uninhibited. Going abroad is a special experience, and it is wonderful to be able to encourage other students to go study abroad. I thoroughly enjoy talking about and presenting my international RISE experience.Katie Isch | School of Liberal Arts
RISE offers two types of development grants for faculty interested in creating a new course or updating a new one.
