A Rice University police officer has been fired after going off campus to aid police officers following an ‘officer down' call. RUPD fired Officer David Sedmak for dereliction of duty – leaving while on duty without notifying his supervisor he was gone.
The class of 2015 is starting to come together since the May 1 regular decisions were sent out. The quality of students coming in is equal to or better than previous years in terms of test scores, leadership, community out-reach and entrepreneurship Vice President for Enrollment Chris Munoz said.
Starting next fall, a group of high school students will work in Rice labs alongside current Rice undergraduate students. The Rice Mentorship Initiative will reach out to students from under-served communities to provide opportunities to research with an undergraduate mentor on campus.
