Julie Griswold came to Rice in the fall of 1986, shortly after earning her master's degree in higher education student affairs/counseling from Indiana University. It was then she took charge of monitoring the academic progress of more than 350 Rice student-athletes. From those first few years running the academic advising for athletic office single-handedly, Griswold now oversees a staff of three advisors and more than 50 academic tutors.
Griswold reports to Rice Univeristy's Academic Advising office and works with the divisional advisors of each college to help each student-athlete develop individual academic plans and achieve the ultimate goal of graduation. Since she began her work at Rice, Griswold has seen countless student-athletes receive academic honors including nearly 100 Academic All-Americans. Thanks to her and her staff's hard work, the Owls regularly rank among the top 10 in the nation in total graduation rates for athletes.
A 1981 cum laude graduate from Miami University, in Oxford, Ohio, with degrees in mathematics and education, Griswold has an impressive coaching background, including the prestigious Indiana Girl's Basketball State Championship in 1983. While working on her graduate degree at Indiana University, Griswold served as the Hoosiers' academic graduate assistant (1984-86).
Currently, she is an associate of Hanszen College and serves on the Division of Undergraduate's Diversity and Inclusion Collaborative. Julie is active in City of Refuge Church, bible study groups and has eight nieces and nephews.
