Institute for Research in Innovation, Sustainability and Entrepreneurship (UCMiRISE) is the new name for the Strategic Academic Focusing Initiative proposal to establish an Entrepreneurship Research Institute (ERI).

Over the past two years, faculty developing ERI have responded to proposal opportunities, and vetted the idea for this initiative with faculty and administration.

An emerging group of faculty has moved forward the idea for UCMiRISE as a possible ORU.
