Welcome Letter 1.jpg


It is my pleasure to welcome you to 180 DC at Rice University. Houston is the 4th largest city in the United States and has over 600 non-profit organizations. 180DC at Rice University is uniquely positioned to create a positive social impact in our community. Our goal is twofold, the first is to provide students at Rice University an opportunity to work with non-profit organizations in the community, and secondly, to offer an opportunity to gain valuable experience as consultants that will be useful for launching a career in consulting. 180DC at Rice University believes in utilizing the unique diversity on the campus of Rice University.  We are the only consulting club on campus to have both undergraduate and graduate students participating as consultants on projects, allowing us to gain unique backgrounds that support our aim of providing quality solutions for our clients.

I have had the privilege and honor of working with non-profit organizations for many years and have really enjoyed the process and experience. While I am working towards my MBA at Rice and acquiring valuable knowledge from a world-class institution, 180DC has afforded me the opportunity to continue my journey working with non-profit organizations and applying my business knowledge to a worthy cause.

So, if you are a student looking to join an organization with a purposeful mission or a client seeking a unique solution to your problem then 180DC at Rice University is the right place for you.

Lastly, I want to thank all who have supported us in the past and those that continue to support us today. We are better today because of your efforts.
