2017 Rice Veteran's Leadership Series: Leadership and Innovation

Please join us for this year's Rice Veteran's Leadership Series with keynote speaker former U.S. Army pilot and NASA Astronaut, Colonel Timothy L. Kopra. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the greater Houston community has faced numerous challenges. Col. Kopra will share his insights and elaborate on why leadership in the face of adversity is relevant in the community, in the classroom and in business.

RVLS is an annual event organized by the Veterans In Business Association at Rice Business in partnership with Baker Institute’s Roundtable Young Professionals to honor a nationally known veteran. This event features veterans who have excelled in business, the arts and public service. Past speakers have included former Governor and First Secretary of Homeland Defense Tom Ridge, former Heisman Trophy Winner and CEO Pete Dawkins, retired U.S. Navy four-star admiral and SEAL William McRaven and other distinguished veterans. This event is also intended to raise awareness of the growing number of VIBA students on scholarship at the Jones Graduate School of Business.
