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.
The Crisis Management Advisory Committee and the Office of Research have been assessing the conditions and processes that would allow for a phased reopening of our laboratory spaces for on-campus research. Based on the data for Harris County and the City of Houston, we will begin Research Stage 1 of our reactivation plan starting Tuesday, May 26, 2020. All aspects of RS1 will be governed by the concept of “essentiality”; thus, only research that requires the use of on-campus research infrastructure will be permitted on-campus during RS1.
