Biographical / Historical

Established in the fall of 1968, the Society of Rice University Women promotes an effective and continuing dialogue between the university and its alumnae. Designed as a women's organization with which all could identify after graduation, SRUW also welcomes female friends of Rice to join and participate.

General meetings and seminars feature Rice professors and staff sharing their latest research and technology, as well as news of what is happening on campus.

Proceeds from seminars and dues benefit SRUW Scholarship Endowment Funds for female Rice students, the Fondren Library Woodson Research Center, and the Shepherd School of Music. SRUW is also a source of volunteers for campus activities.
