About us

You have to be as wise as an owl to attend Rice University, and have really good SAT scores. Often referred to as the "Ivy League of the South," Rice -- with mascot "Sammy the Owl" -- consistently appears at the top of college academic rankings, including those published by U.S. News & World Report. The private university has an enrollment of more – more... than 6,000 and about 1,100 full-time, part-time, and adjunct faculty members (giving it a student-teacher ratio of about 6:1). Rice offers programs through eight schools in areas such as engineering, computer science, economics, music, and architecture. The university opened in 1912 with funds from the estate of William Marsh Rice.

Operations


Rice's research programs span a dizzying array of disciplines that include energy, health and tax policy, science and technology, conflict resolution, and border policy. About 80% of Rice students are from the US, including about 45% from Texas.


Strategy


The school is in the process of increasing the number of its undergraduates to 3,800 students while still maintaining its very low student-faculty ratio. The change, which began in 2008 and will take place over 10 years, could involve building two new residential colleges, the expansion of existing colleges, and a possible Rice-affiliated off-campus facility to house both undergraduate and graduate students.

I only worked at Rice for a few weeks, but the people I worked with were very talented and professional. The onboarding process was almost completely painless and any administration or staff I had to deal with were fantastic.
