Welcome to the University of Denver Interdisciplinary Research Incubator for the Study of (In)Equality (IRISE).

IRISE is the result of a successful "incubator" proposal in response to the pilot phase of the Provost's Renew DU process in 2013. Upon receiving a call for proposals from the Renew DU Committee, faculty and staff were assembled into teams or incubators to develop pilot programs to "transform the university."

Renew DU Post Doctoral Fellowship

The Renew DU Post-Terminal Degree Fellowship Pilot Program is a 2 year program that identifies promising scholars who have completed a terminal degree in their field of study and who are engaged in research, scholarship, and/or creative work grounded in understandings of equality; and / or a consideration for the many ways in which the academy or particular fields promote or extinguish the advancement of historically underrepresented communities. For more information visit out Post Doc page.

To learn more about the various ways to be involved with IRISE, visit the faculty, student, post doc, and events pages or email us.
