Rice consistently ranks among the top 20 national universities and the top 10 in undergraduate teaching (US News & World Report); the university is committed to a culturally and intellectually diverse community, as well as to supporting work-life balance of its faculty.The CTE supports the teaching mission of Rice’s 546 tenure-track and 341 non-tenure track instructional faculty. Rice’s CTE is unique in that it was founded and developed by faculty, and affiliated Faculty Fellows continue to play a vital role in the Center. 

Houston is the most diverse city in the country, and boasts a vibrant economy as well as world-class museums, performing arts venues, restaurants, and sports teams. Rice University is committed to a culturally and intellectually diverse community, and is committed to supporting the work-life balance of its faculty. We seek greater representation of women, scholars  of color, LGBTQJ people, people with disabilities, veterans, and others who have historically been underrepresented in academia. The CTE strives to actively counter prejudice, to accelerate progress in building a faculty who are diverse in background and thought, and to create a working environment that is inclusive and equitable.
