Rice Business | Groups




Out & Allied is committed to increasing awareness, understanding, and support of the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) community. We are group of openly LGBTQ and Ally members proud to represent and support gender and sexually diverse people. We fulfill our goals by sponsoring various events and programs in areas such as education, networking, community, and civic involvement. 

Out & Allied welcomes all students, faculty, and staff of Rice Business to join.

Our purpose is to:

  • foster awareness, understanding, and support of the LGBTQ community throughout the Jones, Rice, and the overall Houston community
  • aid in our members' success at Rice and beyond 

We accomplish these goals in a number of ways including:

  • host events with businesses, alumni, and business leaders to increase professional touch points for Jones and Rice students
  • build relationships with LGBTQ focused organizations across the Rice campus and in the Houston community
  • welcome each new class of LBGTQ students at Jones
