Shaping the Future.
The RISEUP program offers undergraduate students an opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary mentored research on multiple-stakeholder environmental issues. RISEUP is a 12-week summer research program that will pair qualified, research-motivated college students with professional mentors from academic, non-profit and private sector backgrounds to explore these issues and work together to discover sustainable solutions.
Funding and support for RISEUP is made possible by the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies of Wayne State University.
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.
