What is a HawCC student RISO?
A HawCC student RISO is a student Registered Independent Student Organization. A RISO
provides co-curricular opportunities for students to acquire leadership, team work,
organizational, and implementation skills. A RISO also engages students in responsible
problem solving and decision making. Students must think critically, employ ethical standards,
and interact with other people.
What students learn through a RISO will serve them well as college students, as it supplements
the classroom experience. It provides students with academic (as extensions of their curricular
program), social, recreational, cultural, and/or civic opportunities. But the benefits of RISO
membership go beyond the campus and extend into a student’s life as a family member,
employee, and community member.
