Community Dialogue Luncheon

Community Dialogue Luncheons serve as a forum for community leaders to discuss social issues that affect all sectors of society. Offered quarterly, these luncheons provide an informal round table for engaging discussion and idea sharing and encourage people from various ethnic and cultural backgrounds to get to know each other and form a network.

Rice Connection Speaker Series

Multicultural Community Relations launched a new program in December 2010, the Rice Connection Speaker Series, in which a Houston community leader invited to present a lecture to Rice faculty, staff and students about a pressing social issue. The participating group is limited to 25 guests. Each luncheon focuses on a timely topic and hosts a different set of goals.
