WHO WE ARE Rising Immigrant Scholars through Education (R.I.S.E.) is a student run organization at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo that seeks to create a more inclusive environment for undocumented students. We seek to build a community of support for Undocumented/AB-540/DACA students by creating partnerships, alliances, and relationships with students, staff, faculty, administrators, and community members to advocate and organize for equal access and affordable higher education.
We envision a community in which all students have access to higher education regardless of immigration status and where university, regional, and national policies respect the dignity and rights of the immigrant community.
We hold regular meetings and workshops related to topics such as DACA, financial aid, and immigration rights. Contact us if you have questions or needs. We are here to help!
