The Center for Regional History and Cultural Heritage serves the University and the region through its work in documenting, preserving, and presenting various aspects of local and regional history; architectural trends; archaeology; ethnic and folk traditions. Members of the Center staff provide assistance to museums, historical societies, schools and a number of city, county, state and national agencies.
The Center offers a wide variety of consulting services, including museum registration and cataloging, cultural resource management, historic architectural surveys, as well as program planning in regional and local history.
The Center also is involved in public outreach activities which serve to promote the value of historic preservation and regional cultural expression. The Center is administered within the College of Liberal Arts and serves as a support unit for student and faculty work in history, historic preservation, anthropology, archaeology and folklore, as well as other fields.
