Risk Intervention & Safety Education (RISE)


Risk Intervention & Safety Education (RISE) is a Texas Tech department focusing on Prevention & Wellness efforts for the Red Raider Community. The RISE Office provides a variety of services, educational workshops, and fun FREE events! RISE also administers the required Think About It course for all incoming first-year and transfer students.

Texas Tech is committed to the safety and wellness of all Red Raiders. This goal is best achieved when we all play a part in creating a community of care for our fellow Red Raiders and a campus climate that is welcoming. Safety and wellness are shared responsibilities of students, faculty, and staff on our campus. When we say "I am a Red Raider!" we are committing to being part of the TTU Family.

RISE partners with several departments on campus to provide students and their parents, faculty, and staff a comprehensive safety and wellness program.
