RISE Learning for Life

RISE Learning for Life
A grassroots community-based organization created for and by mature individuals to afford them the opportunity for stimulation, enlightenment and interaction with peers in an environment that encourages lifelong learning and friendship

What is RISE Learning for Life?

RISE Learning for Life is a self-directed organization governed by its own elected officers and operating in accordance with its own constitution.  RISE is hosted by Rio Salado College's Lifelong Learning Center in Surprise, Arizona. 

RISE is one of more than 200 Institutes for Learning in Retirement in the nation. Learning in retirement provides interaction with peers, one of the most beneficial and enjoyable experiences one can have.

RISE classes can be discussion groups or workshops led by member facilitators, or lectures presented by experts from hospitals, universities and the local community. Classes are offered during the day and each is about two hours long.

Classes cover subjects on natural science, social science, health and wellness, spirituality and religion, the arts, finance and technology. Best of all, there is no homework, no exams and no stress. Just pure fun in learning. Learn more at the RISE website:
