The Radow Institute for Social Equity’s (RISE) mission is to conduct scholarship that creates pathways to expanding opportunities for equity across diverse populations; fosters community engagement and dialogue around issues of social justice and racial inequality; and develops tomorrow’s leaders to combat social, economic, and political inequities. The goal for RISE is to be an international destination for a broad spectrum of active scholars and educators who work together to develop strategies to advance social justice and equity. RISE is committed to diverse scholarship and grantsmanship focused on developing sustainable solutions that address the most pressing social challenges, and lead to long lasting community impact.
