Rice Presidents and Provosts exhibit online!

The president of Rice University is the chief executive officer, handling the top level direction of the university in collaboration with (and reporting to) the Board of Trustees. The provost of Rice University is the chief academic officer, reporting to the president.

Over the years, Rice has always had a president (with one notably bumpy transition) and sometimes has had a president who was also the provost. In several situations, provosts served officially as vice-president or acting president.

Presidents and provosts at Rice have significantly shaped the landscape of the university with their dreams and goals – read on to learn what each has been known for at Rice!
