RISEbio is a National Science Foundation-funded scholarship and support program that is targeting incoming biology freshmen. The goal of RISEbio is to increase student academic success through: (1) increasing student social integration and support, (2) developing student technical and professional skills, and (3) implementing a freshman immersive research program.

In this talk, we will describe the RISEbio program, how it is designed to support student success, our model for integrating authentic research projects in to the freshman curriculum, and our vision to expanding the RISE program across the university.
