About the speaker
Jeff founded January Advisors, a technology firm that works with governments and non-profits in the public sector. He’s worked on government transparency projects, drafted open data policies, visualized government data, organized hackathons, and spearheaded get-out-the-vote campaigns. His work has been recognized by the White House, the Houston Business Journal, and the League of Women Voters, among others.
But when he moved to Houston six years ago, he didn’t know anyone here. Since then, his journey involves a handful of startups, a few eccentric millionaires, a heavy dose of meetups, and a whole lot of friendly Houstonians.
The mission of the Susanne M. Glasscock School of Continuing Studies is to further Rice University’s commitment to educational outreach by providing lifelong personal and professional development opportunities to the larger community. Established in 1967 with its first courses offered in 1968, the school now attracts just short of 20,000 enrollments each year to its non-credit and credit programs and is the leading university continuing education program in Houston. In 2006, Continuing Studies officially became the Susanne M. Glasscock School of Continuing Studies to honor a generous endowment gift from Houstonians and Rice alumni Melbern G. and Susanne M. Glasscock.
Personal development opportunities are offered in arts, humanities, sciences, creative writing, studio art, photography, lifestyle and personal finance. Professional development programs include courses in human resources, paralegal studies, facility management, communication skills and financial services.
