Student-Athlete Development
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.
