Center for Heritage Resource Studies


The Center for Heritage Resource Studies was established in 2000 to bring scholars and practitioners together to support a comprehensive approach to the study of heritage. Center faculty and affiliates are leaders in the field of heritage studies, working at local, national, and international levels. The Center’s activities are formulated in a way that can be readily applied by those responsible for the management of historic, cultural, and environmental resources. In this manner, the Center aims to contribute substantially to an increased awareness of the need for responsible heritage development.
