Dateline Rice for Sept. 5, 2017 (Harvey Edition)

Editor’s note: Today’s issue is devoted to coverage related to Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey and the Rice Owls’ trip to Australia. Many from the Rice University community were cited in news reports about Harvey. The list of those media placements along with other media mentions from last week exceeds 45 pages. We counted each article for our annual reporting, but out of respect for your time, we’re including just a sample in today’s Dateline. We will include the non-Harvey-related media placements from last week in upcoming issues of Dateline. The names and titles of the students, faculty and staff who appear in the following articles are included at the end of this issue.
