Research and Scholarship











Exploration with a Purpose

Our community has cultivated researchers, scholars, innovators, activists, policy makers, influencers, educators, and most importantly ‘leaders and best’. This can be seen by the amazing work done by our current members, undergraduate student alumni and professional alumni. Each new initiative created, every mentoring relationship fostered, and every alumni networking connection established has made WISE RP what it is today and has allowed us to successfully actualize our mission, tenets, and vision daily.
