There are three ways to participate:
Enter the conversation: Begin discussing the ideas that you find most exciting with your colleagues. These ideas may involve some combination of Rice’s research, educational, or outreach enterprises. We are looking to faculty to identify critical research, educational, and outreach problems for 21st century higher education, and to begin the process of identifying solutions that we might implement programmatically.
Submit an idea as part of a faculty team: Proposals can be uploaded here. You will need to submit preliminary information on: initial team members; a brief description of the idea; and whether the idea addresses the research, educational, or outreach enterprises. All Rice faculty will be able to see your team’s idea. The Rice LIFT website requires NetID authentication, so it is accessible only to Rice faculty.
