TAMU Race Identity and Social Equity (RISE) Initiative, formally known as the Student Diversity Summit, is a yearlong program that provides students with a better understanding of race, identity and social equity in higher education.
TAMU RISE includes an annual conference, and fellowship opportunity which allows selected student leaders to attend the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity known as NCORE, conduct research during fall semester, and present findings to the campus community at the RISE Conference.
Through meaningful dialogues, the annual conference seeks to cultivate understanding of diversity and establish a brave space and open environment for discussions on issues that impact Texas A&M and beyond.
TAMU RISE Initiative is modeled after the Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity (ISCORE) Program.
More information about the conference and registration can be found on the TAMU Rise website.
