 RiceLeaders Faculty 

The individuals selected to serve on the faculty of the RiceLeaders program are regarded as experts in their respective fields.  While Kevin Kirby (VP for Administration) and Brent Smith (Rice University Jones Graduate School of Business faculty member, and program design consultant for RiceLeaders) designed the starting point for the curriculum, the individual faculty gave input to and helped refine the curriculum, including selecting the cases and readings used.
