All Black Clubs Page

What is the All Black Clubs (ABC) group?

The Black and Black-affirming Student Organizations at Rice strive to provide a support network for all Black people at Rice and to provide cultural enrichment for the campus and the community at large. Each organization aims to achieve these goals and promote the advancement and excellence of all Black students at Rice, through service, active awareness, and community events. We serve to share diverse experiences and uplift each other in academics, athletics, and all social aspects of life, truly exuding the essence of unity and collaboration.

The ABC (All Black Clubs) Fund will go directly to support Black and Black-affirming undergraduate organizations on campus. Half of this fund will be used for collective ABC initiatives, including but not limited to events, outside speakers/performances, professional development, awards, etc. that we would otherwise not attach to a specific club. These initiatives will be approved by all nine Black and Black-affirming undergraduate organizations. The other half of this fund will be divided evenly between all nine Black and Black-affirming undergraduate organizations listed below to execute and support their respective missions.
