Subname: Rice University
Rice University’s Kinder Institute for Urban Research is a “think and do” tank that advances understanding of the challenges facing Houston and other urban centers through research, policy analysis, and public outreach. By collaborating with civic and political leaders, the Kinder Institute aims to implement promising solutions to these critical urban issues. Created in 2010, the Kinder Institute was endowed with a $15 million gift from Houston philanthropists Richard and Nancy Kinder.
Recently Houston Endowment has awarded $7 million to the Kinder Institute to expand its research capacity and ability to help solve urban issues and to provide a cluster of data and research services to the Houston communities under the Houston Community Data Connections (HCDC) initiative. A steering committee was formed to guide HCDC's priority points and to help build stronger partnership with community organizations in the region.
