Relationships in STEM Education (RiSE)

The RiSE program offers peer mentors to students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Mentors are knowledgeable guides who can connect you to the right people and resources on campus to help you succeed.

RiSE students also have access to many other benefits, including:

  • A community of peers in STEM
  • Academic and professional development workshops
  • Career exploration events
  • College-to-career guidance
  • Opportunities to volunteer for RiSE-related workshops and events

Program Eligibility

You are eligible for RiSE if you are earning an associate degree and/or intending to transfer to a four-year institution in one of the following fields of study: astronomy, biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, engineering technology, environmental science, geology, mathematics, materials science, physics, or pre-nursing.

RiSE is available to students of any status. We welcome full-time, part-time, international, non-resident, and Running Start students!
