We will increase our impact and visibility nationally and globally through digital education, global presence and alumni engagement.

Extend Rice’s Reach and Impact.

We must complement our strong campus community by building greater national and international engagement, visibility and recognition. We must further invest in digital educational technology and employ it to enhance opportunities for students on the Rice campus, to vastly increase our educational reach and global footprint, to engage and support our alumni, and to augment our resources. We must utilize and build on our strengths in improving and assessing learning and producing state-of-the-art tools and resources in digital education. To maximize these opportunities, we must identify and serve new learners through innovative online programs, including master’s degrees and graduate certificates. We must serve our growing population of alumni, parents and friends with a range of educational opportunities and fully engage them as a supportive and visible network. We must establish deeper and more focused international relationships and collaborations and explore new possibilities for creating a stronger global presence, such as establishing international centers.
