RISE: Calendar & What to Expect

As announced by the president and provost on Tuesday, April 7, Boston University has cancelled on-campus programming for Summer 2020. In light of this, we have made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel the Internship track this year due to its hands-on laboratory nature. The RISE Practicum track will be moving to a remote learning environment.

RISE is a six-week program like no other. Whether you enroll in the Practicum or Internship track, useful information about what the program will be like can be found below. Be sure to read through our check-in and departure sections for other key details.

Program calendar

Program start and residential orientation July 5

Note: dates and times for weekly meetings with the RISE Program Manager will be announced in your program schedule.
