Residential Initiative on the Study of the Environment (RISE)

The Residential Initiative on the Study of the Environment (RISE) is a living-learning program focused on sustainability and environmental stewardship. Established and supported by a consortium of six colleges, RISE provides students at Michigan State University with the resources to successfully transition from high school to university academic life and a community of peers with shared values and interests.

RISE students participate in a community and curriculum focused on hands-on engagement. Students get their feet wet and their hands dirty while applying their knowledge to real problems and projects on campus, in the community, and globally.
