APS Student Caucus - RiSE-UP


What Is RiSE-UP?
RiSE-UP (Research on Socially and Economically Underrepresented Populations) is a committee that works to enhance awareness of the need for research by and/or about underrepresented populations.

All graduate and undergraduate student affiliates interested in research related to underrepresented populations are welcomed to join RiSE-UP. Students who are from underrepresented populations as well as students who conduct research related to underrepresented populations are especially encouraged to become members of RiSE-UP.

In keeping with the mission of RiSE-UP, members work to assist, coordinate, advocate, and recommend programs, policies, and research on issues related to underrepresented populations. There are 6 sub-committees to RiSE-UP, and students are allowed to select which committee(s) they would like to join. Throughout the year, members will participate in several RiSE-UP activities, with their individual focus being determined by their sub-committee. The sub-committees are listed below.

  • Aging
  • Individuals with Disabilities
  • Ethnic Minority
  • Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgendered Individuals
  • Women’s Issues
  • Working Class Individuals
