The Center for Heritage Conservation was authorized in 2005 as a professional center for interdisciplinary research and service projects on all aspects of built and natural heritage. Since 1977, Texas A&M University has been recognized for academic and research programs dedicated to the better understanding of our historic legacy.
The Center supports research of planned and built environments with particular emphasis on their continued use and care. Investigations are performed through sponsored projects and professional and academic graduate studies. Research findings are disseminated to the public through publications and presentations in academic and professional journals and conferences.
The Center has over fifty active cross-disciplinary Professional, Faculty and Corresponding Fellows who provide a unique cross-campus and national network that supports the recording, analysis, repair, reuse, interpretation and wise management of historic buildings, places and cultural sites.
The Center's programs enrich educational opportunities by building on an established network of course offerings, increasing the knowledge and professional skills of the practice community.
