Rice athletics must integrate transgender student-athletes

(04/17/19 5:06am)

Title IX is the bedrock of anti-sex discrimination law in the U.S. It requires universities that receive federal funding to prove equality of opportunity for female student-athletes compared to male student-athletes. At Rice, the impact of Title IX is simple to see: We offer seven men’s sports teams and seven women’s sports teams and we provide a proportionate number of scholarships to female student-athletes in regard to our student body population. 













Rice should learn from Brown’s Resident Associate search

(04/17/19 4:38am)

Rice is often praised for its unique ability to foster community through the residential college system. As a key site of interaction for students and faculty, residential colleges allow students to build relationships with adult members of the Rice community including associates, college coordinators, magisters and resident associates. As individuals that students tend to interact with on a daily basis, RAs hold arguably the most crucial role on the administrative team. Their role, Rice University Office of the Dean of Undergraduates, is to serve as both “positive community facilitator[s]” and “role models” while providing “guidance and leadership to college members.” 


Response to Saliba: Bipartisanship requires cooperation

(04/17/19 4:33am)

Conservative students are a minority at Rice, like they are on many other college campuses. This can make it difficult to facilitate equally weighted political dialogues. That being said, this doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t have constructive discussions with differing viewpoints. As the only undergraduate student association affiliated with the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy, the Baker Institute Student Forum is a nonpartisan organization that provides opportunities for Rice students to gain exposure to and explore current policy issues, with the goal of encouraging all students to contribute their voice to our nation's discourse.
