From the unconventional wisdom and ideas generated by faculty, to the unlimited potential for students to learn and make an impact, the stories of Rice University showcase a dynamic community that is on the move.

Rice is ...

We are unconventional in our thinking and bold in pursuing our goals. We seek opportunities for learning, discovering and creating in Houston and around the world.

We are rooted in a tradition of accessibility and opportunity. All Rice students should have the resources – academic, social and financial – to reach their fullest potential.

The unbeaten path is familiar territory for Owls. We confront what is possible by taking risks, learning from others and tackling challenges with ingenuity and tenacity.

We pursue excellence in all of our endeavors and believe that the Rice community has the talent, values and resources to make lasting contributions to humanity.
