Rice University aspires to path-breaking research, unsurpassed teaching, and contributions to the betterment of our world. It seeks to fulfill this mission by cultivating a diverse community of learning and discovery that produces leaders across the spectrum of human endeavor. As part of a recently launched $150 million investment in research initiatives designed to support this mission, and with support and leadership from the Rice University Board of Trustees , we are pleased to announce the establishment of the Rice University Academy of Fellows (RUAF).
RUAF fosters intellectual exchange and advancement of research through the creation of an interdisciplinary community of Rice Academy Faculty Fellows and Rice Academy Postdoctoral Fellows. The work of the Rice Academy includes exciting academic and research programming. With the 2017-2018 cohort, the Rice Academy will focus on scholarship and creative activities broadly related to health, inequality, and data science.
