Rice University English professor and acclaimed author Kiese Laymon has been awarded a MacArthur Fellowship, the prestigious honor popularly known as the “genius grant.”
Rice earns an “A+” grade and ranks as one of the nation’s top 10 universities in the latest ratings of American colleges compiled by Niche.
Kirsten Ostherr — the Gladys Louise Fox Professor and Chair of the Department of English, and director of both Rice’s medical humanities program and the Medical Futures Lab — was invited by the U.S. Embassy in Berlin to give a lecture July 13 at the Benjamin Franklin campus of the city’s Charité hospital, one of the largest university hospitals in Europe.
Alyssa Cahoy, a senior Health Sciences student in the Department of Kinesiology, won the Morehouse College Project Imhotep Public Health Leadership Award during her summer internship at the Atlanta program.
Each year, Rice honors members of the university community who have served students through outstanding teaching, dedication and service.
Rice University professor Tomás Morín has won a 2022 Guggenheim Fellowship, an honor bestowed annually by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation to a slate of the world’s top scholars, artists, writers and scientists.
Each semester’s slate of Big Questions courses offered by the School of Humanities starts students’ minds churning over thought-provoking topics. So this fall’s offerings are no surprise: one promises to spur Rice scholars to think critically about what makes bodies normal as opposed to abnormal, while the other course will push students to examine just what, exactly, is a fact.
