The RISE program currently has three separate seminar activities taking place.
MARC-U*STAR, RISE, Rising Researchers, and WSRTP all attend. PhD attendance is optional. Four seminars, followed by lunch with the speaker, are held each semester.
PhD Seminar Speaker Meetings
On undergraduate seminar days, the RISE PhD trainees meet with the speaker independently and discuss career paths, etc.
PhD Professional Development Seminars
Twice per semester, the program hosts a campus-wide Professional Development talk for all PhD students.
