The 18-member Rice Business Alumni Association (RBAA) Board is charged with leading engagement between the business school and its alumni. The RBAA Board acts as an advisory body to the dean and the administration and serves as a voice for the alumni community.

The Board's mission and purpose centers around four key pillars of alumni engagement: community, philanthropy, volunteering and life-long learning. To facilitate its mission, the RBAA Board maintains several task forces, each focused on a specific goal.

If you are interested in serving on the board, please take a moment to read the Board Member Responsibilities and Expectations Statement.

Board nominations for the 2020-2021 year are closed.
