Rice Faculty, Staff and Graduate students have access to sensitive and confidential university information.  Rice Visiting Students include many different types of Rice community members, including faculty and staff who are taking Rice courses.  Because many Visiting Students have access to sensitive data, they are also provided secure Rice email accounts.  Rice community members using  this reason, faculty, staff and graduate students are provided email accounts in an internal, secure email system called Rice email. Undergraduate students do not usually access sensitive university data and their email is managed externally, through Rice Google mail or Rice Gmail.
