Rice's top priority throughout the pandemic has been the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors. Effective Oct. 11, 2021, masks are required indoors for gatherings of more than 10 people, and gatherings of more than 100 people must go through a review and approval process by the university. Individuals who have not yet been fully vaccinated must wear a mask indoors at all times. Details regarding upcoming in-person events are subject to change. Please refer to Rice's COVID-19 policies on the university’s crisis management website.

The Office of Alumni Relations will continue to share opportunities for virtual engagement among alumni and friends in the Rice community, as well as in-person activities on campus or in a city near you, in accordance with university and local guidelines.
