The Center for African & African American Studies is Rice's primary location for curriculum and research related to Africa and to people of African descent in the Americas and beyond. Offering a broad base for teaching and pedagogical resources as well as interdisciplinary scholarship and programming that brings Rice into national and international conversations, the center is a clearinghouse for critical conversation, instruction, cutting-edge research, and community outreach in an interdisciplinary fashion.

A collaboration between the School of Humanities and the School of Social Sciences, the center produces synergies and harnesses collaborative engagement across the university. The center provides a unique hub for conversations on crucial topics: critical approaches to race and racism, the nature of diasporic histories and identities, and the complexity of Africa’s past, present, and future, to name a few.

Rice University is a private, comprehensive research university located in the heart of Houston’s dynamic Museum District. Houston is the fourth largest city in the United States and also one of the most diverse cities in the country and home to a significant African diasporic population. Rice offers undergraduate and graduate degrees across eight schools and has a student body of approximately 4,000 undergraduate and 3,000 graduate students. Rice consistently ranks among the top 20 national universities and the top 10 in undergraduate teaching (US News & World Report); its endowment ranks among the top 20 of US universities. It is an Equal Opportunity Employer with commitment to diversity at all levels, and considers for employment qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender, identity, national or ethnic origin, genetic information, disability, or protected veteran status.
