Residential Intensive Summer Education (RISE)


Come Experience Cal Poly Pomona Community with RISE!

The Residential Intensive Summer Education (RISE) program is designed to facilitate the transition of students by developing a strong sense of community, campus connectiveness, support services, and leadership development. We do this by providing faculty, staff, and student support to participants related to their academic, personal, and professional goals. Our program is designed to support students who identify as a part of the African Diaspora, but all students are encouraged to apply!
