The RISE Mission is to enhance and expand collaborative learning opportunities and experiences for undergraduate students across the University.



Foster an institutional environment that prepares students for career readiness by applying knowledge and skills in real world settings through collaborative learning experiences.


Relation to Student Success

The RISE vision is to prepare students with real-word/hand-on experience  throughout the undergraduate curriculum to improve their   transferable soft  skills and competencies, and to enhance their entry into workforce by showcasing students as Collaborative Experiential Learning Scholars. Thus, the program is designed to employ a combination of high impact practices of student-faculty engagement through curriculum infused pedagogy of collaborative learning assignments and capstone projects and community-based learning, and internships across undergraduate academic programs. The University, through this program, aims to fundamentally change the culture of teaching and learning by adapting more relevant, current event inspired, collaborative learning educational experiences for students at B-CU.
