Governance

The Program in Jewish Studies is an independent, interdisciplinary program housed in the School of Humanities. The Advisory Board functions as the link between the Rice campus and the Jewish communities in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and beyond, as well as Rice affiliates and alumni. The Executive Committee consists of Rice faculty members who are responsible for long-term planning and implementation of the program’s activities.
