This is Rice — a university on an inspired pursuit
of the unknown. Our mission is to pursue
pathbreaking research, provide unsurpassed
teaching and, through that knowledge and
discovery, contribute to the betterment of our
world. We work together to achieve what some
think is unachievable. This is unconventional
wisdom. This is Rice University.
We developed these standards to provide a
foundation for uniform application of key visual
elements that make up the identity of Rice
University. Consistent use of these elements is
necessary to create an accurate picture of Rice.
Our guidelines include standards for all internal
and external media, including publications,
advertisements, Web-based communications
and collateral materials — plus templates for
PowerPoint presentations. Use of the identity
standards aligns and strengthens all of Rice —
both on and off campus.
This site is intended for both internal and
external users. It was created by the Rice
University Office of Public Affairs, which
is charged by President Leebron with the
responsibility to develop and maintain standards
that promote, protect and project the Rice
