(Founded 1921. Formerly known as Faculty Women's Club of Rice University)

Mission and Membership

The purpose of the Club is to promote friendship among women of Rice University and to welcome newcomers.

The Club welcomes as members women faculty, staff, active or retired, as well as female spouses, partners or family members of faculty and staff, active or retired. We also welcome female postdoctoral students and female spouses, partners or family members of postdoctoral students.

Our business meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month of the school year (September to April) at the Cohen House, Rice University’s Faculty Club on the Rice University campus.

We invite people from Rice and the wider Houston community to offer us a lecture, following our business meeting. Those lectures cover a variety of topics and interests, and are open to the Rice community. We sometimes organize on-campus visits or excursions to interesting destinations. Carpools are available always.

The meetings and lectures at Cohen House or elsewhere on-campus are followed by lunch at the Faculty Club. Tables are reserved for those who wish to stay for lunch. If members of the Rice community who are not members of the Faculty Club wish to stay for lunch we can arrange for them to pay via check or cash.

The first meeting of the year is traditionally held at the President’s House, and the last meeting of the year is traditionally an afternoon tea social.
