RISE and MARC Cohort 2018

The mission of our RISE student research program at California State University, Dominguez Hills, is to increase the number of underrepresented students who enter into and complete the Ph.D. in biomedical or behavioral science and pursue research careers. To accomplish our mission we have set measurable goals and objectives that stress the importance of engagement, capacity and continuity to achieve student success. Our goals are to build academic skill capacity; to build the student's capacity for scientific research careers; provide a continuum of enrichment opportunities and resources to support the development of RISE students as future Ph.D. candidates. We expect that our enrichment activities will build the GPA of our students and afford them the opportunity to publish and present at discipline specific meetings. The skills that they learn will carry them well into their graduate programs and make the transition from an undergraduate to a graduate institution appear seamless. These components will increase the number of RISE students entering Ph.D. programs across the Nation and they will join the biomedical workforce to improve the lives and health of our Nation's citizens.
