Rice Business Staff Council

Making Magic Happen

Our Mission: To enhance the work experience for all staff members of Rice Business by providing representation, resources and opportunities for involvement that elevate and celebrate overall work-life engagement.

The staff council was formed in 2018 to work with the dean’s office in an effort to strengthen ties between employees in the business school, enrich the school through more efficient and thoughtful processes, and improve our personal and professional outcomes.

If you have questions or comments, please email and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
