Pacific Islander Asian American Resilience Integrity Self-Empowerment Education

The PRISE Learning Community is a student support program that enhances the experiences of Pacific Islander and Southeast Asian students at American River College. It is open to all students, including first-year, continuing, and returning students from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

Through dedicated courses; academic counseling and other resources; social and cultural activities; mentorship; educational workshops–it strives to foster a supportive and empowering learning environment and kinship among PRISE students. It aims to increase graduation and transfer rates while reducing opportunity gaps for historically disadvantaged students.

Students must join the PRISE Learning Community in order to access specific course offerings and services.
