Community Service



Rice Athletics is committed to giving back both to the Rice campus and the Greater Houston community. We work with student-athletes, coaches, and staff to empower them to become leaders in affecting social change, to develop both a lifelong commitment to service and an ethic of social responsibility, and to work together to make our community strong through their involvement in athletics.

During the 2012-2013 school year, Rice student-athletes and teams reported over 3,400 hours of community service with more than 50 different organizations. Some of the ways that our student-athletes served the communities were:

  • Spending time with kids from the Nehemiah Center
  • Hosting various youth camps and clinics
  • Reading and interacting with students at our local elementary schools
  • Serving food to the homeless at the Soup Kitchen
  • Visiting patients in the hospitals of the Texas Medical Center
  • Conducing a food drive and blood drive

If you are a community group and would like to have a student-athlete, coach or athletic department staff involved with your group or event, please contact Lauren Cavallaro.
