Welcome to REEP

Hodge, Andrea

Welcome. The Rice Education Entrepreneurship Program (REEP) is a unique, innovative, multi-disciplinary approach to training campus leaders who are not only prepared to run effective schools and create great learning environments for kids but also able to face the challenges that we see in K-12 education today.

REEP was designed collaboratively between local business leaders and educators to create a program that extends beyond the traditional approach to education leadership development. We view the role of a School Principal as a CEO where the school leader deploys capital, both human and financial to meet the needs of the community.

REEP is committed to train a cadre of highly motivated professionals ready to lead excellent public schools for all children, particularly those who are currently underserved.

The various REEP programs and events are tailored to the developmental needs of school leaders and offered through Rice University Jones Graduate School of Business in Houston, Texas.

The accomplishments of our students and alumni demonstrate a unique and invaluable business education experience obtained at Rice University. We take pride in the REEP community impact and contribution to reshape the current public school system.

I invite you to learn more about the REEP programs and to engage in the various REEP education events. I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm regards,

Andrea Hodge
Executive Director of REEP
