RISE. Reflect. Intervene. Speak. Engage.

Campus and Student Life’s campus-wide diversity awareness initiative, RISE. Reflect. Intervene. Speak. Engage., represents our shared commitment to the values of respect and free expression as a University community.

RISE encourages the University community to reflect on and to challenge assumptions about the role of class, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, disability, and other aspects of identity. Through RISE, we will examine our differences — recognizing both the tensions they create, and the fundamental role those differences play in creating the rich and free exchange of ideas that is a hallmark of this University. It will continue to help to shape how members of our community think about the world, and provide a foundation for our students as they enter life after the University.
