Optional programs

Project Thrive

Project Thrive is a program designed specifically for students who are the first in their families to attend college. The program provides students with community gatherings, a strong connection to the Office of Intercultural Student Engagement, mentorship and off-campus excursions. Project Thrive supports students during their academic transition and helps them achieve cultural success. Not sure if you qualify as first-generation? Project Thrive may still be for you. Please email ise@risd.edu with any questions.
