Executive Board

The Rice NSBE Executive Board is comprised of ten positions, each of which works to accomplish the NSBE Mission Statement in a unique way. These positions work together to carry out the mission and vision of NSBE. The Rice NSBE 2020-2021 Executive Board is a team of dedicated students who are committed to success, growth, and fulfilling the NSBE mission statement. While some are returning members to the Executive Board (some have been on the board for up to 3 years), and others are on the board for the first time this year, all share the same NSBE Vision.
