Rice's guiding principle for the current decade is no upper limit. University leaders remain committed to excellence, to innovation and to remarkable achievements -- goals originally articulated by Edgar Odell Lovett a century ago. Lovett's enduring vision now fuels Rice's pursuit of 3 overarching objectives: transforming extraordinary students into extraordinary leaders; generating innovative solutions to complex challenges; and using knowledge to lead locally and globally. With no upper limit in mind, Rice welcomes challenge. Our 2nd century promises to be even more outstanding than our 1st.
