Rice has the advantages of being a major research university while retaining an intimate size that enables an unusual amount of intellectual collaboration. The Director of Risk Management is integral to this relationship based community and is a key partner in ensuring its functioning and vitality. A central part of this role entails serving as a key thought partner and trusted advisor to the university's senior leaders on all risk management matters.
The past decade has been one of tremendous scholarly accomplishment, growth and change for Rice. For example, 40 percent of the faculty were not at Rice a decade ago, and non-U.S. citizens now comprise 25 percent of the faculty. The undergraduate population is 30% larger and they participate in almost 300 student clubs, all of which require risk management plans. And the built environment is 40% larger than a decade ago. Rice is an institution on an upward trajectory and the next decade will bring more success and growth. As Rice's risk management leader, the Director of Risk Management will enhance the university's ability to further its mission and vision by leading and supporting risk management programs.
