RISEUP: Research Internships for a Sustainable Environment with Undergraduate Participation

The Lake St. Clair-Detroit River-Lake Erie corridor encompasses multiple watersheds, an extensive range of cultures, and a diverse industrial sector. Restoring the corridor's natural resources from degradation and planning for a sustainable future involves the discussion and cooperative action between industry, advocacy groups, impacted communities, academic institutions and all levels of government. The RISEUP program, funded by the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies at Wayne State University, offers college students an opportunity to engage in mentored research on multiple-stakeholder environmental issues.  RISEUP is a 12-week summer research program that will pair qualified, research-motivated undergraduate students with professional mentors from academic, non-profit and private sectors to study these issues.
