Rice University

Rice University Center for Civic Leadership

Beyond the Sallyport

Civic Leadership Competencies: Values, Beliefs, and Assumptions, Reflection, Diversity of Communities and Cultures

Beyond the Sallyport (BTS) is designed to introduce first- and second-year students to the the City of Houston as well as to the center and its programs. The experience provides a pathway to civic leadership that guides participants toward engaged service and research experiences, a deeper understanding of social injustice, and a lifelong commitment to the creation of sustainable change in the greater Houston community and beyond.

The Sallyport, an iconic stone archway on the Rice campus that serves as the entry point for freshmen during the annual matriculation ceremony, has become synonymous with the Rice experience. Beyond the Sallyport encourages students to move past their collective comfort zone, redefine community, and claim their place in Houston's future.
