Peer Research Ambassadors

Meet the OURI Peer Research Ambassadors

Peer Research Ambassadors are Rice students who have engaged in research, design, and creative work during their undergraduate careers and want to help other students get involved. Ambassadors host office hours and attend OURI workshops and events in order to share information specific to their academic schools. They also serve as an advisory board, providing feedback to OURI staff on how to improve outreach efforts.
