IRISE

Interdisciplinary Research Incubator for the Study of (In)Equality (IRISE)

Mission & About Us

The University of Denver Interdisciplinary Research Incubator for the Study of (In)Equality (IRISE), a project funded by the Renew DU Committee, is the result of a successful "incubator" proposal in response to the pilot phase of the Provost's Renew DU process in 2013.

As such, IRISE seeks to establish a needed intellectual structure for students and faculty that will,

  1. facilitate the interdisciplinary teaching and learning, collaboration, research, scholarship, and creative works that seek to promote equality in historically underrepresented communities, and 
  2. develop, support, and implement academic programs and activities that seek to promote the advancement of historically underrepresented populations in the Academy.
