Everyone can be a leader.
Now is the time to determine the skills you have and the skills you need to become the leader you wish to be.
Our goal is to elevate the leadership capacity of Rice students and to elevate the practice of leader development in higher education.
Four principles guide our philosophy and are the foundation for shaping tomorrow's leaders.
Leader development is a core function of the university
Use of evidence-based techniques
Use of professional people
Objective measurement of outcomes
What We Do
The Doerr Institute is a large-scale leader development enterprise at Rice University. We are not affiliated with a school or any other institute at Rice.
We are committed to the early development of leader abilities in young people, and unlike other programs, are not focused on experienced students in leader roles. We help develop all students who want to increase their capacity to lead, no matter how young or inexperienced they might be.
Using evidence-based approaches, we offer a myriad of programs, at no cost, to all Rice students.
