Our Resident Intensive Summer Experience (RISE) will be held in August 2020  in an online format due to the impact of COVID-19.  During RISE, students will be immersed in courses and research tailored to their specific program, meet with faculty advisors and fellow classmates, and learn more about their degree programs.

RISE Delivery & Expectations

RISE 2020 will be fully online due to the impact of COVID-19. As mentioned in the memo sent in early May, we advise that students cancel all travel reservations as there will not be any on-campus sessions. We will not be sending out a digital registration form this year although students will still be required to participate virtually in all parts of RISE. Throughout the week content will be presented in a mix of synchronous and asynchronous sessions. We will be using D2L (Desire2Learn) and Zoom to conduct all programming.

D2L is an online space for digital delivery of program content. Zoom is a video communications app used for video conferencing, webinars, screen-sharing, and other collaborative capabilities.
