50 Years of Black Undergraduate Life

In the Fall of 2016, Rice University achieved a milestone in celebrating 50 Years of Black Undergraduate Life at the institution. In partnership with Public Affairs, the Alumni Relations department hosted several events that honored African-American alumni.

The celebration was an overwhelming success, winning two Grand Gold Awards in the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) 2017 Circle of Excellence Awards international competition.
