24 Oct Rice University: Where Students Learn to Lead
The time to rise to your leadership potential is now. The Doerr Institute for New Leaders offers all Rice students the chance to explore their unique leadership abilities, and in doing so, to enhance their impact on the world they’ll soon be leading.
The Ann and John Doerr Institute for New Leaders (DINL) was founded with the strategic aim of transforming how students are developed as leaders in all top tier colleges and universities. In accepting the Doerrs’ $50M donation, Rice committed to the proposition that all of its 6,200 graduate and undergraduate students should be offered a compelling, professionally-executed leader development experience of a scope and scale unprecedented among major universities. We see our work not as extra-curricular, but co-curricular — we pay attention to academic program objectives and integrate university-wide to help faculty as they develop students, and help students develop themselves. DINL is accomplishing these aims through three broad leader development initiatives – Strategic Integration, Leveraging Rice Culture, and Direct Development. As you read through the initiatives, imagine how our world might be different if every college and university took this approach.
