Rice ARA President Donald Bowers discusses volunteerism at Rice

Donald Bowers ’91 really enjoys working with Rice students and takes every opportunity to do so. Whether as the president of the ARA, as a member of the R Association, or as vice president at the Houston Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, he actively tries to connect current students to new ideas, to fellow alumni and to each other. It’s about “building confidence of knowledge” he says, and he is eager to share how the Initiative for Students is helping Rice’s network of proud alumni to stand up — and stand out. We sat down with him to for a brief conversation about his experience both as a mentor and as a mentee at Rice.
