Identity standards

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 University brand.
