Quality Enhancement Plan
Appendix H: Engaging Houston Survey
Welcome to the "Engaging Houston" Survey.
I write to invite your participation in Rice's first-ever
comprehensive survey of university engagement with Houston and the
world, the results of which will be published in print form and on
a searchable website. By identifying and quantifying both formal
programs and individual commitments, we will seek to demonstrate
Rice's already commendable participation in the life of our city,
as well as evaluate what new efforts would prove beneficial.
The survey has two components:
1. Individual Community Commitments (All Rice Faculty and
Individuals affiliated with Rice University engage our community
not only professionally, but also personally. To better understand
this informal network of relationships by Rice community members,
we'd like to know about your affiliations and collaborations beyond
the hedges. The Office of Student Activities will collect relevant
information pertaining to students.Your name will not be publicly
released or linked to the information you provide below:

Note to Rice Faculty:
I encourage all faculty members to also include this information in
the Faculty Information System (
) where we have created a new category for outreach entitled
"Houston Engagement." You may log into the system and click
the following buttons: "Service," then "Outreach Activities," then
"Add New Outreach Activity." From there, choose "Houston
Engagement" from the "Type" selection menu. Next, fill out the
form. If you wish to capture more than one activity, simply click
"Add New Outreach Activity" button, making sure to specify "Houston
Engagement" for each new record.
2. Rice-Sponsored Programs and Activities (Preapproved
A subset of Rice faculty and staff have been identified as the
leaders of major, university sponsored activities that engage Rice
with Houston and the world. If you have not already been contacted
to complete a survey record, and feel that you are the leader of a
major Rice-sponsored outreach activity, please contact
. If you are a preapproved record manager, you may access your
record on the following page.
I wish to express my personal thanks to all members of the Rice
community for their efforts in completing this survey.
