BIOGRAPHY

Hope Grant is the Training Specialist for Electronic Research Administration, and was asked to join the "SAC 2.0" committee in 2019 on an ad-hoc basis to assist with the transformation as Hope had previously served on SAC from 2015-2018. 

Hope was urged to join SAC by a (now-retired) colleague who urged her to be involved with aspects of Rice outside of her daily tasks. Hope's colleague explained how being a member of (then SAC) would help her to understand the history and culture of Rice, and appreciate the community in a different way. Hope feels Staff Council does bring a new perspective to her Rice experience as she gets to learn more about other areas of service, as well as be a servant to the Rice Community. Hope feels the biggest reward is understanding how so many moving pieces work together to fulfil our vision and building a larger network outside of her core department.
