Organizational Sketch

For each incoming Rice president, an Inaugural Committee is formed which works with the Board of Governors and the President's Office to plan the numerous presidential welcoming events and celebrations. After the inauguration, the committee is released from duty.

The university's semi-centennial was officially celebrated in 1962, fifty years after the opening of the Rice Institute (Oct., 1912). The centennial will be celebrated in 2012.
