Graduate STRIVE: Students Transforming Rice Into a Violence-Free Environment

STRIVE Coalition is a dedicated group of students who have come together to address sexual and domestic violence on campus. The Coalition is made up of an executive board, STRIVE liaisons to colleges, STRIVE liaisons to graduate programs, STRIVE representatives in a variety of student groups, and volunteers. The Coalition is advised by The SAFE Office.    
We envision a world that is free from inequality and violence, where every person experiences sexuality and relationships in healthy and positive ways.
Engaging in positive open dialogue about gender-based inequality and interpersonal violence while providing tools and skills necessary to create cultural change for graduate students. 
Graduate STRIVE liaisons can support you with issues and concerns about:

  • Off/On campus sexual harassment
  • Concerns about Title IX policies
  • Interpersonal Violence
  • Stalking
  • Discrimination based on gender, sex, or pregnancy
  • Dynamics of Healthy Relationships
