Staff Report

RIO GRANDE — The University of Rio Grande will host the second RISE in the John Berry Fine Arts Center.

RISE, which takes place April 14, is a research and scholarship exhibition day for undergraduates to present projects they have worked on throughout the academic year.

Dr. Heather Duda, associate professor of English and Honors Program director, said the event will include several exhibitions including paper discussions, music performances and Kabuki theater.

“The projects can be whatever is considered scholarship for a discipline,” Duda said. “For example, we will have paper and poster presentations as well as performances. These exhibitions are predominately projects that have been done through classes or independent or direct studies.”

Duda said some of the projects presented will also be part of the Provost’s Academic Initiative grant, which provides funding for student and faculty research. She also said the event allows students and the community to see what different programs at the university have been working on throughout the year.

“It’s a great opportunity for students to get together and see what scholarship everyone is working on and share one of their big projects with the campus,” Duda said.

RISE will take place between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and will feature exhibitions by more than 60 students. Duda said the event is open for the community to see the students’ work.
