ISE is excited to announce a new summer program to support first generation students. RISD FGC POP is an intensive, two-week, multifaceted experience for incoming RISD students whose parents did not attend or did not complete college (in other words, first-generation college students). RISD FGC POP is designed as a transformational experience focused on supporting students in their holistic development. 


Students will spend time expanding their artistic and academic skills, exploring their social identities, and building community with peers, continuing students, faculty and staff.
