Dear Future Colleague,
This is an exciting time to consider your career with Rice Development and Alumni Relations (DAR). With the launch of Rice’s new strategic plan — the Vision for the Second Century, Second Decade — and preparations for a groundbreaking new campaign, there are ample opportunities to grow your skills and experiences, while contributing to a truly distinctive and visionary university. Here are a few key reasons to consider growing your career with Rice DAR:
- Our standard for excellence. Since our founding more than 100 years ago, we have aspired to “no upper limit” in our mission to achieve unsurpassed research, teaching and service with global impact. We are consistently ranked the No. 1 university in Texas and are among the top 20 universities in the country. This standard extends to Rice’s award-winning DAR division, which has achieved a successful $1.1 billion campaign, sustained a top-ranked giving participation effort and implemented creative, data-driven strategies for fundraising, volunteer engagement and alumni relations.
- Our collaborative environment. Our donor-centric prospect management system, culture of transparency and emphasis on shared learning all contribute to a more collaborative and strategic environment. Our team members frequently work with various departments within DAR and across campus to strengthen relationships and further Rice’s mission.
- Our culture of care and connection. We strive to support our staff’s best work by promoting curiosity, professional growth and creative input in an intellectually stimulating and family-oriented environment. We value the individual talents and perspectives each member of our team contributes to the division and larger Rice community. We enjoy being connected to the greater life of the university — and we make this connection personal by encouraging staff to be involved with student and campus life, as well as events in and around Rice and Houston.
If you are looking for an environment that will contribute to your professional growth, support opportunities for personal success and match your enthusiasm for creativity and collaboration, then Rice University might be the place for you.
