University Governance

Over the past century, Rice has been able to uphold its founding president’s vision of an institution “of the highest grade” while still providing a superior education to students at tuition levels much lower than comparable schools. This has been possible because of the university’s dedicated leadership throughout its history. It takes many people to successfully govern a nationally ranked research university, from the president and other officers to the Rice University Board of Trustees to each member of the university committees.
