There is a new standard for educational programs.


Attendance and satisfaction are no longer sufficient indicators of success.


Programs must now demonstrate measurable change.

Custom Curriculum Design

As programming budgets shrink, it becomes more critical that educational initiatives clearly demonstrate results, but meeting this standard requires more than guesswork and good facilitation. It takes expertise in applying effective techniques in adult learning and curriculum design.

When you need this level of talent, RISE is here to help. We help determine the best approach, whether it is an interactive workshop, an online resource, a developmental experience, or a policy change. Our team then guides you through the entire curriculum design process, from identifying learning outcomes to evaluation of results. With our help, you will be able to clearly show a direct impact on your students and your community.
