For more than 50 years, Glasscock School of Continuing Studies has offered personal and professional development opportunities to the Houston community and beyond in a variety of subject areas, opening the gates of the Rice experience to the world. OpenRICE builds on that legacy.
OpenRICE is an initiative by the Glasscock School to offer relevant and timely expertise and insight, free and online, to the Houston community. Reflective of the wide-ranging nature of our educational programs, these single session experiences will provide access to a broad cross-section of subjects to help Houstonians gain a greater understanding of a multitude of topics, and will serve as an educational supplement and primer for further thought and deeper study.
Initially, the series will focus on the enormous transformations taking place in work, learning and life as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds. Over time, OpenRICE will evolve to address new and emerging topics of interest to our community.
