ARISE Program: ARISE is an acronym that stands for Advocacy, Respect, Identity, and Self-Expression.  The ARISE program utilizes teaching methods to engage the individual in understanding and contributing in an inter-dynamic society.  Participants produce a monthly newsletter and news broadcast, where residents write articles, cover campus events, research stories, find appropriate web images and clip art, read news stories on camera, conduct interviews, etc.  ARISE participants exercise comprehension as they consider topics related to self-advocacy.
