The first full evening of the storm, the Rice University Provost called me and asked that the Doerr Institute for New Leaders team with the Center for Civic Leadership to create Rice's volunteer response to the need in Houston. In order to accomplish that, I created a Leader's Intent Statement to read back to the Provost to ensure that we were on track with what she wanted. The intent statement gave the effort a successful launch, and the success of the Rice volunteer initiative is well documented with multiple videos. Because it was useful in guiding the work of all involved, I thought it might be nice to share the original document, which I have uploaded. It is a great example of fast communication used in a crisis to organize effort while providing for initiative.
