Welcome Marshall Middle School and WALIPP Preparatory Academy!

The Texas Diversity Council and Multicultural Community Relations in the Office of Public Affairs, Rice University welcomes you to the Second Annual Texas Diversity Council Summer Youth Program. During the next five days, we will be providing you the opportunity to participate in a Rice University campus tour, various workshops, which includes college financial aid and the admissions process, discussions on student life, preparing for the PSAT, and inspirational talks about the importance of going to college and pursing a professional career.

The program is designed to allow you to participate and interact in a learning environment with leaders and professionals who will offer the latest information, skills and tools to help you succeed.

We hope that you take advantage of the many resources that will be offered during this time and look forward to having you return. We want to thank all of the presenters, panelists and moderators who have taken time to join us and be a part of the program.
