Unconventional Wisdom

At Rice, we believe nothing is impossible. There is no "what if" that cannot become "what is." That's why we challenge convention at every turn: from the uncommon research approaches we take, to the fresh solutions we find, to the way we insist on advancing tomorrow's thinking. It sounds like a lot from a small university, but that's what makes us special. That's what gives us unconventional wisdom.
