CNAS RISE Symposium


RISE Symposium Overview

The Research In Science and Engineering [RISE] summer research focuses on student success and retention in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields.  This year, students from the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences are participating in RISE as either members of the Learning Communities CNAS Scholars, PERSIST Grant, Summer Bridge to Research, Dynamic Genome Scholars, California Alliance for Minority Participation, Riverside City College - Bridges to the Baccalaureate RCC-B2B, and Faculty REUs.

Throughout the summer students were engaged in research, mentored by scientists, and involved in numerous student success activities. This symposium represents the culmination of our student's efforts, but the good news is that more opportunities will present themselves during the coming school year as well.  

We congratulate all of the students for their dedication, commitment, and hard work over the past 10 weeks. We also thank all faculty, research scientists, graduate students, undergraduates, and other personnel for helping us make this a successful program. We hope that this has been a rewarding experience for you as you begin your scientific careers and we look forward to watching you succeed for years to come.  It has been our pleasure to work with each one of you and we wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
