Through its grant supported work, IRISE encourages its partners to hire students to work as research assistants on projects.  Preference is given to those students who are completing the Critical Race and Ethnic Studies Minor or are pursuing projects (Honors Thesis, Masters of Dissertation theses) related to racial justice.   Please review here for a list of projects or join the IRISE newsletter to learn when opportunities become available.

Roger Salters Institute:  IRISE supports students to engage in critical race and ethnic studies research and scholarship.  The program honors distinguished DU faculty who have had a tremendous impact on historically underrepresented students at the university.  Students involved in the program explore tools for advancing racial justice scholarship and the ways in which our lived experiences connect and diverge with both the expectations of the academy and the communities with whom we collaborate.  More info:
