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