The Who Summer Celebration
Red Cross Totes for Hope  
A successful athletics department is built by having great people at every level, from coaches to staff to the student-athletes.

"The Who" is a group of Rice Athletics employees who strive to make Rice Athletics the best athletics department to work for in the nation. Our efforts focus on demonstrating appreciation and promoting a happy, engaged workplace culture of teamwork. Feel free to contact any member of "The Who" if you have ideas to aid these efforts!

At each All-Staff meeting, we recognize staff members who go beyond the their duties to enhance the workplace for every member of the department. Each month, we highlight members of our department in order to learn a little more about them beyond the our daily interactions on the job. We hope you take a moment to browse through some of the features below and take note of those employees who have been cited by their peers as being truly Owlstanding!
