The mission of RISE is to increase the applicant pool of historically underrepresented students (African American/Black, Chicanx/Latinx, Native American/Alaska native and/or Pacific Islander) through programs that motivate and support while pursuing the business major. RISE at HAAS is sponsored by the Haas Undergraduate Program Office.

RISE seeks to create a greater presence on the UC Berkeley campus by partnering with alumni and various student organizations. Connecting with these communities assists in promoting the diverse areas of business, while serving as a network to prospective Haas undergraduate students.

RISE provides participants with academic advising, peer mentorship and comprehensive resources that are conducive to the retention and growth of the RISE community at the Haas School of Business.

RISE also offers various informative workshops and events about the Haas undergraduate application process and the student experience.
