Rice's Race and Anti-Racism Research Fund
Internal research funding aimed at better understanding and addressing how race, racism, and racial injustice affect society today, and furthering the opportunities for policies and actions that will help achieve our goals of creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive university and broader society.
(Updated 1/8/2021) Due to worsening pandemic conditions, the Office of Research is alerting researchers that research activity will need to return to Research Stage 2 (RS2) on Friday, January 15. The Crisis Management Advisory Committee and the Office of Research are closely monitoring trends at the local and regional level. Updated Guidelines for Research Stage 2 can be found here. This advisory provides an update to the research community about the transition back to RS2 and a general overview of what RS2 entails. Principal investigators must notify team members of these changes. In RS2, research activity will continue; but with an emphasis on reducing the overall campus population and contingency planning should there be a need to transition back to Research Stages 1 or 0.
(Updated 9/28/2020) Please review the Guidelines for Research Reactivation for Research Stage 3, effective September 28. RS3 directs research spaces to follow the general campus guidance with regard to COVID-19 safety.
