As part of Rice University’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, the Development and Alumni Relations division seeks to support a culture of belonging, trust and respect for our team members and for the many constituents we serve within the Rice community and beyond. We welcome applicants who bring varied experience, thought and practice to the division’s mission to engage our alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends in the greater life of the university.
Our vision is to be a leader in university advancement and an employer of choice by recruiting and supporting a diverse community of Owls.
With a dedicated cohort of staff volunteers, including the Lead DAR Forward task force comprised of leaders in the division and a DEI Champions group with representatives from across the division, we developed an initial action plan that prioritizes education, action and accountability.
Initial Objectives 2020-2021
We aim to strengthen diversity, equity and inclusion in Development and Alumni Relations by completing the following objectives in 2020-2021. Each goal will be assessed annually and by the following criteria: Accomplished (objective was met), Ongoing (substantial work was accomplished but additional work is needed), and Objective Not Yet Met (there was insufficient work to meet the objective).
