Center for History and Culture

logoThe proposed mission of the Center is to support the creation, preservation, and transmission of knowledge about Southeast Texas. It also assists with an understanding about the people, history, culture, and environment of Southeast Texas and the Upper Gulf Coast.  Through a collaborative, worldwide approach to teaching, scholarship, service, and community outreach, the Center is dedicated to engaging and transforming the communities of this region.

mapThe geographic reach of the Center is broadly conceived, crossing county and state boundaries.  It includes the 29 counties of Southeast Texas that are a part of the coastal area of the Gulf of Mexico and most of the Texas portion of the Intracoastal Waterways, as well as the pine forests of the Big Thicket.  The Upper Gulf Coast includes the coastal regions of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi.
