The George R. Brown School of Engineering is a place where women thrive. Bucking national trends, they make up more than 35% of engineering undergraduates. That’s because women engineers find a supportive environment at Rice Engineering bolstered by talented faculty who are comprised of 21% women, ranking 8th among self reporting AAU institutions.
We seek to provide K-12 students and teachers from diverse backgrounds access to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) opportunities at Rice through school visits, summer camps, professional development, and other activities tailored to their interests.
Our Spotlights on Diversity and Inclusion is intended to recognize individuals, teams or organizations with connections to Rice Engineering that enhance the equitable participation of people from diverse groups in engineering education and/or practice.
There are no exclusionary clubs at Rice. All engineering students are welcome and encouraged to participate in more than 200 student organizations, including performance, media, athletic, academic, religious, cultural and political groups. With this full range of extracurricular options, students can pursue existing passions or expand their horizons by trying something new.
