Current RISE Student Projects

All RISE students enroll in NSC 192 - Environmental Studies Seminar during their first semester at MSU. In the class, students learn about the principles of sustainable food production and visit campus sustainability resources.  Students are encouraged to write and submit grants for funding to improve sustainability in their campus home or neighborhood.  The ability to collaborate with faculty within the neighborhood as part of their residential experience is value added to their college education and RISE benefits from the ongoing opportunities for student engagement in solving real-world issues.
