Consultations and Feedback

The Rice Center provides a confidential and non-evaluative environment in which faculty can seek advice, mentorship, and feedback. We invite you to schedule a 1:1 meeting at any time. Additionally, if you would like direct feedback on your teaching, you can arrange to have a trained observer sit in on your course to provide insights and guidance. We offer multiple mechanisms for consultations and feedback:
