Our Value to Rice
The Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership will support Rice University's Vision for the Second Century
"We must fully engage with the city of Houston—learning from it and contributing to it—as a successful partnership with our home city is an essential part of our future. We should do so by continuing to integrate students, by emphasizing selective areas of research, especially important to the city (notably energy and urban studies), by making tangible contributions to improve our city (particularly K-12 education and environmental quality), and by continuing to provide innovative educational and cultural resources to the broader Houston population."
