Rice in the Community
Rice giving back
At Rice, “engagement” can mean many different things. It could mean Rice’s many programs of educational outreach, a natural outgrowth of the research, teaching and service of our faculty. It could refer to any of a myriad beneficial research collaborations Rice maintains with institutions across the city and around the world. It could be more volunteer-based, as in the dozens of local service projects coordinated by the university. Or it could be a hybrid of education and altruism, as in the case of the Center for Civic Leadership, established to incorporate service learning into the curriculum of the university for the benefit of both our community and our students.
