about RISE WVU.

President Gee talking with students.

Rise WVU creates opportunities for students of color to build an academic community and persist towards graduation.

We collaborate with campus partners to offer various services and events to connect and unify underrepresented students with the broader campus community.


The Quad Living-Learning Community (LLC) has been created for students of color. Join The Quad, and be one of the first students to benefit from this unique opportunity to live and learn in our supportive community.
