Attending Virtual RISE

On Thursday, April 9 between 10:00am – 5:00pm RISE Presenters will share their research virtually with RISE Judges, friends, family, professors, colleagues, University leadership, and all others who join via scheduled Microsoft Teams meetings.

At a minimum, each meeting consists of 1 RISE Presenter and 2 RISE Judges. Additional members may include 1 Focus Award Judge, RISE support staff, and any number of attendees.

Meetings between Presenters and Judges are 15 minutes in length, and will include introductions, the pitch, and Q&A.
