GRADUATE RECRUITMENT & RETENTION

To be succesful in fulfilling our mission of inclusive excellence, we must commit ourselves to:

  • Acknowledging our differences
  • Seeking critical mass for underrepresented populations
  • Enriching our learning environment

 

 

GRADUATE RECRUITMENT & RETENTION

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion, with its objective to support and guide Rice by facilitating a campus environment that promotes diversity, inclusion, and academic achievement, has institutionalized campus-wide programs in the areas of recruitment and retention efforts for underrepresented populations on the doctoral level. Programs are held to ensure students' success through mechanisms in the form of mentoring, professional development, and community-building activities, as well as assisting with the navigation of financial support.

 

To help achieve our objective, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion is also working in conjunction with Rice's Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (GSP) Office, and GPS's professional development workshop schedule can be found here. Information on training for new students can be found here.

 

There are myriad funding opportunities available for doctoral students and some of those follow:
