Rice Athletic Hall of Fame

In 1970, the R Association honored 14 former athletes and one former coach as first members of the Rice Athletic Hall of Fame.

The criteria for consideration for the honor, as set forth by the R Association, states that to be eligible, a candidate "must possess or shall have possessed, in addition to outstanding ability in sports, other qualifications such as sportsmanship, character and integrity, and be one who has brought great distinction to Rice University; and shall have completed his or her athletic eligibility or service with the Athletic Department or Rice University at least five years prior to his or her selection."

New members were inducted at an annual banquet until 2000, when the decision was made to induct new members every other year. The newest members of the Rice Athletic Hall of Fame will be inducted the fall of 2011.
