SpaceCOM: the Rice Space Institute Community of Members

RSI is committed to promoting and participating in the robotic and human exploration of space by fostering interdisciplinary research and education in collaboration with academic, business, industry and government partners and to engaging the broader Houston community in promoting space-related research and education.  SpaceCOM allows you to participate directly in this vision.

SpaceCom is comprised of a variety of membership categories:

  • Rice Community Membership (Faculty, Students, Staff and Alumni)
  • Associate Membership
  • Corporate Partners

Membership is free to individuals.  All SpaceCOM members receive regular updates advanced notice of seminars, scientific meetings, and all Rice Space Institute events.  Members will be able to share ideas and interact with the broader Houston space community.

In addition, Rice faculty and student members will have access to research, education, internships and job opportunities as they arise.

Corporate Partners are private industry organizations that sponsor research, public awareness, and education at the Rice Space Institute through the donation of funds.  If you are interested in becoming an RSI Corporate Sponsor please contact us at rsi@rice.edu.  A description of sponsorship levels and benefits can be found here.
