The RISE Center's core mission is to uplift and support every Bruin’s well-being by providing the education, resources, and tools needed to foster health, healing, and hope for themselves and the world around them.
As an extension of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), we are committed to helping students build a strong foundation of resilience that includes caring for their mental wellness through daily practice.
Our intentional programming and restorative on-campus space are run by a dedicated and diverse staff who are committed to helping students become their authentic selves in accessible, supportive, and inclusive peer-oriented spaces.
All services are free of cost and include an array of workshops, trainings, drop-in consultations, and self-directed resources. Programs are offered both in the RISE Center and in collaboration with students, staff, and partners across campus.
