Initiative for Students volunteers gather to focus on the student experience and alumni engagement


Volunteers for Rice help strengthen the university with their experience and expertise. Through a variety of opportunities spanning interests and spanning the globe, we hope to connect the Rice community to volunteer positions that are meaningful not only for the university, but also for the volunteer.

Featured Opportunity

Regional groups provide opportunities for alumni, parents and friends to interact with fellow Owls in their community, stay connected to Rice, and continue their relationship with the university in ways that are meaningful to them. Alumni Relations works with local volunteers to establish programs and services in alumni communities around the nation and the world.

Volunteer Stories

We owe it to the next generation of Rice alums. We were taught and given the best knowledge and the best models of interaction and excellence. It just seems natural that it would be upon us to set it free to the next generation.

—Lidya Osadchey ’81, CEO of Escape Family Resource Center
