Today, Rice is a faculty member at Stanford University, as a professor of political science and a professor of political economy in the Graduate School of Business, as well as the Thomas and Barbara Stephenson Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution. She is also a founding partner of Rice Hadley Gates LLC., an international consulting firm based in Silicon Valley and Washington D.C.
