v 1911 the cornerstone was laid for the Institute’s first building, the Administration Building, now known as Lovett Hall in honor of the founding president. V septembri 23, 1912, the anniversary of William Marsh Rice’s murder, the William Marsh Rice Institute for the Advancement of Letters, veda, and Art began course work. 48 mužskej a 29 female students were enrolled, paying no tuition, with classes taught by a dozen faculty. Unusual for the time, Rice accepted coeducational admissions.
Three weeks after opening, a spectacular international academic festival was held in celebration, bringing Rice to the attention of the entire academic world. O štyri roky neskôr, at the first commencement ceremony, 35 bachelor’s degrees and one master’s degree were awarded. ten rok, the student body voted to adopt the Honor System, ktorý ešte existuje dnes. The first doctorate was conferred in 1918 on mathematicianHubert Evelyn Bray.
Počas druhej svetovej vojny, Rice Institute was one of 131 vysokých škôl a univerzít v rámci Nemecka, ktoré sa zúčastnili V-12 Navy College program odbornej prípravy, ktoré ponúkajú študentom cestu k provízii Navy.
The Founder’s Memorial Statue, a bronze statue of a seated William Marsh Rice, holding the original plans for the campus, was dedicated in 1930, and installed in the central academic quad, facing Lovett Hall. The statue was crafted by John Angel. The residential college system proposed by President Lovett was adopted in 1958, with the East Hall residence becoming Baker College, South Hall residence becomingWill Rice College, West Hall becoming Hanszen College, and the temporary Wiess Hall becoming Wiess College.
v 1959, the Rice Institute Computer went online. 1960 saw Rice Institute formally renamed William Marsh Rice University. Rice acted as a temporary intermediary in the transfer of land between Humble Oil and Refining Company and NASA, for the creation of NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center (now called Johnson Space Center) v 1962. President John F. Kennedy then made a speech at Rice Stadium reiterating that the United States intended to reach the moon before the end of the decade of the 1960s, a „to become the world’s leading space-faring nation“. The relationship of NASA with Rice University and the city of Houston has remained strong to the present day.
The original charter of Rice Institute dictated that the university admit and educate, tuition-free, „the white inhabitants of Houston, and the state of Texas“. v 1963, the governing board of Rice University filed a lawsuit to allow the university to modify its charter to admit students of all races and to charge tuition. v 1964, Rice officially amended the university charter to desegregate its graduate and undergraduate divisions. The Trustees of Rice University prevailed in a lawsuit to void the racial language in the trust in 1966. Rice began charging tuition for the first time in 1965. V rovnakom roku, Rice launched a $33 milión ($248 milión) development campaign. $43 milión ($262 milión) was raised by its conclusion in 1970. v 1974, two new schools were founded at Rice, the Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Management and the Shepherd School of Music. The Brown Foundation Challenge, a fund-raising program designed to encourage annual gifts, sa začal v roku 1976 and ended in 1996 having raised $185 milión ($279 milión). The Rice School of Social Sciences was founded in 1979.
On-campus housing was exclusively for men for the first forty years. Jones College was the first women’s residence on the Rice campus, followed by Brown College. According to legend, the women’s colleges were purposefully situated at the opposite end of campus from the existing men’s colleges as a way of preserving campus propriety, which was greatly valued by Edgar Odell Lovett, who did not even allow benches to be installed on campus, fearing that they „might lead to co-fraternization of the sexes“. The path linking the north colleges to the center of campus was given the tongue-in-cheek name of „Virgin’s Walk“. Individual colleges became coeducational between 1973 a 1987, with the single-sex floors of colleges that had them becoming co-ed by 2006. By then, several new residential colleges had been built on campus to handle the university’s growth, including Lovett College, Sid Richardson College, and Martel College.
The Economic Summit of Industrialized Nations was held at Rice in 1990. v 1993, the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy was created. v 1997, the Edythe Bates Old Grand Organ and Recital Hall and the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology, premenovaný na 2005 for the late Nobel Prize winner and Rice professor Richard E. Smalley, were dedicated at Rice. v 1999, the Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology was created. The Rice Owls baseball team was ranked #1 in the nation for the first time in that year (1999), holding the top spot for eight weeks.
v 2003, the Owls won their first national championship in baseball, which was the first for the university in any team sport, beating Southwest Missouri State in the opening game and then the University of Texas and Stanford University twice each en route to the title. v 2008, President David Leebron issued a ten-point plan titled „Vision for the Second Century“ outlining plans to increase research funding, strengthen existing programs, and increase collaboration. The plan has brought about another wave of campus constructions, including the erection the newly renamed BioScience Research Collaborative building (intended to foster collaboration with the adjacent Texas Medical Center), a new recreational center and the renovated Autry Court basketball stadium, and the addition of two new residential colleges, Duncan College and McMurtry College.
Beginning in late 2008, the university considered a merger with Baylor College of Medicine, though the merger was ultimately rejected in 2010. Select Rice undergraduates are currently guaranteed admission to Baylor College of Medicine upon graduation as part of the Rice/Baylor Medical Scholars program. According to History Professor John Boles‘ recent book University Builder: Edgar Odell Lovett and the Founding of the Rice Institute, the first president’s original vision for the university included hopes for future medical and law schools.
