The Office of Alumni Relations, in partnership with departments and units from across campus and dedicated volunteers, supports campus networks that help advance the mission and goals of Rice University. Campus networks work to connect alumni who share similar interests and passions.
Religion and Public Life Program
The Religion and Public Life Program (RPLP) conducts research, trains scholars, and offers programs that advance dialogue about religion in the public sphere. The program is directed by Autrey Professor of Sociology, Elaine Howard Ecklund.
There are a number of ways that alumni can get involved with RPLP. Receive invitations and updates by joining the RPLP listserv by going to the RPLP homepage and click “Join Now”.
If you would like to support our program by making a financial contribution, please visit our donation page to make a gift.

Rice Alumni for Entrepreneurs and Innovators
Rice Alumni for Entrepreneurs and Innovators (RAEI) provides Rice alumni and student entrepreneurs a forum for networking, peer-to-peer roundtables, competitions, education and mentorship at all stages of their entrepreneurial life cycle.
Join like-minded alumni and students who are current or future entrepreneurs seeking entrepreneurial education, guidance in sourcing capital, business ideas, assistance with developing business plans and running new or established businesses, or Owls looking to mentor others on their entrepreneurial journey.
Rice University Chemistry Alumni
The Rice University Chemistry Alumni group aims to establish a professional network of alumni who wish to remain connected to the department. Through this network, we hope to celebrate the accomplishments of our alumni and to unite them with others in their field. We also hope to invite our alumni to return to Rice to assist our current students by presenting seminars, mentoring students, hosting internships and participating in important departmental events and milestones.
If you would like to support our program by making a financial contribution, please contact the director of development in the Wiess School of Natural Sciences at 713-348-4268.
