In recognition of the diverse needs of racialized and Indigenous students on the University of Ottawa campus, the Racialized and Indigenous Students Experience (RISE) Centre exists to work for a university and society free from oppression..
Are you a Racialized or Indigenous student at University of Ottawa and looking for fun, and time with community? Come by the RISE center and meet the fantastic folks that work and volunteer with us.
The RISE Centre recognizes the restrictions inherent in our language and in the constructions of labels and race categories. We strive to deconstruct these barriers and create new spaces for racialized and indigenous students by working within our communities to challenge, educate and unlearn.
