Rice Athletics

Rice Athletics

At the intersection of academic distinction and athletic excellence, you will find Rice University, the institution of choice for world-class student-athletes. Our student-athletes exhibit the grit and determination to Be Bold and set the expectation both in the classroom and in the field of competition. As we prepare to join the American Athletic Conference (AAC) and embark on a new era of Rice Athletics, increased philanthropic support of our programs will be critical to ensure our student-athletes and coaches are best positioned to compete for championships. With our commitment to providing an unparalleled experience for our student-athletes at the core of our campaign aspirations, we encourage you to partner with us in support of the young men and women who epitomize the Rice Fight!

With your help, we will:

  • Modernize athletics facilities to transform the experiences for Rice student-athletes and fans, led by a renovation of historic Rice Stadium.
  • Fund athletic endowments for coaches, scholarships, and programs that will provide a foundation for sustained excellence in all sports.
  • Grow annual support to the Owl Club Athletic Fund and Rice Athletics Scholarship Fund to exceed $3 million by campaign close in 2025.
