COVID-19 Update for Staff

Message from George Andrews, Associate Dean of Degree Programs, on February 13, 2021. Rice University COVID-19 website.

Dear staff,

In accordance with the decision announced yesterday by Rice’s Crisis Management Advisory Committee, Rice Business will remain 100% remote on Monday, Feb. 15, instead of beginning our planned return to dual-mode delivery and the reopening of McNair Hall. 

If at all possible, we ask that you stay at home and avoid coming to campus. Only essential personnel should come to campus on Monday. For more information, see:

The Crisis Management Advisory Committee will continue to monitor the weather and issue guidance about whether we will remain fully remote on Tuesday as well. In the meantime, please keep an eye on the weather and take any precautions necessary for your own safety. We are expecting dangerous icy conditions in Houston. 

Power and internet outages are possible. Be sure to charge your devices and have the ability to use your cell phone as a hot spot if needed. 

You can expect regular updates from Rice University via Rice Alert (both SMS and emails) as well as from Rice Business through your Rice email.

Stay safe and stay warm,


George J. Andrews, III
