RISE | OMSE Learning Community 

Mission: RISE is a community that aims to protect the retention of undergraduate and graduate women of color (WOC) of Wayne State University to support one another's experienced as WOC at a Predominantly White Institution (PWI). RISE provides a safe space for self-identified WOC to develop Leadership, Scholarship, Sisterhood, and deeper Self-Actualization. Through programming, we create a community that focuses on identity development, promotes self-reflection, and embraces intersectionality while celebrating the diversity that influences our lives.
