About the Graduate Alumni Network

The Graduate Alumni Network (GAN) offers programs, events and services that connect graduate alumni to Rice University, current graduate students and fellow graduate alumni. We seek to meet the unique needs of Rice's vibrant and talented graduate alumni community.

GAN hosts a variety of events each year, including:

  • Graduate Alumni & Student Networking Mixer at Valhalla during Homecoming weekend.
  • Professional networking opportunities.
  • Arts/theater networking socials and cocktail receptions.
  • Pre-game tailgates at select sporting events.
  • Mentorship and networking opportunities in conjunction with the Jones Graduate School of Business and Rice's Center for Career Development.

If you are interested in supporting GAN's programming by making a financial contribution, please visit and be sure to indicate that your gift should go to "Graduate Degree Alumni Programming G82056-057000" in the "Special Instructions" field of the giving form.
