Rice giving back

At Rice, "engagement" can mean many different things. It could mean Rice's many programs of educational outreach, a natural outgrowth of the research, teaching and service of our faculty. It could refer to any of myriad beneficial research collaborations Rice maintains with institutions across the city and around the world. It could be more volunteer-based, as in the dozens of local service projects coordinated by the university's Community Involvement Center. Or it could be a hybrid of education and altruism, as in the case of the Center For Civic Engagement, established to incorporate service learning into the curriculum of the university for the benefit of both our community and our students.

As a recent survey of Rice's community engagement clearly demonstrated, the perception that Rice is or ever was an isolated ivory tower is clearly inaccurate. Great universities and great cities complement and benefit one another. At Rice, we never forget that.
