Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (RISE)

Mission Statement

The mission of the Haskell RISE Program is to increase opportunities for American Indian students at Haskell Indian Nations University (Haskell) to achieve biomedically relevant research careers and thereby increase the number of students who complete degrees in the biomedical sciences. In order to introduce and retain American Indian students in the biomedical sciences, the program provides a Learning Center at Haskell and research experiences within laboratories of KU faculty. All students are welcome at the RISE Learning Center. Students who are accepted into the research program must be seeking an undergraduate degree in a field that has relevance to the biomedical sciences and have an interest in pursuing a career in biomedical research.
