The R-I-S-E in IowaRISE stand for Research, Internships, Service learning, and Engagement. IowaRISE is an initiative to get more students engaged in RISE activities outside of the classroom – because we know that students who participate in experiential learning do better in school, feel more connected to the campus community, are more likely to graduate, and succeed after college. The Public Policy Center is pleased to be leading this initiative by helping to build the infrastructure to support IowaRISE. As we grow, more and more support, resources, and opportunities will become available across campus for students, faculty, and staff who want to get involved in IowaRISE. Already, we have created courses, developed online learning modules (micro-credentials), training opportunities, and more!
