Welcome to the Texas Center for Equity Promotion
TexCEP is a research center that is dedicated to fostering a more equitable future for the people of Central Texas and beyond. We have undertaken a crucial mission – to champion and advance equitable opportunities in health and education through cutting-edge research, impactful outreach and collaborative partnerships.
Our commitment to equity lies at the heart of our research mission. At the center of our efforts are communities that have often been underserved and/or misrepresented in science. We recognize the power of equity-centered research as a way to address health and education disparities that persist in our society. As scholars, TexCEP faculty are committed to further understanding and supporting communities and stakeholders from all backgrounds. Join us in our mission to dismantle barriers and create more equitable opportunities and pathways for success.
The Texas Center for Equity Promotion would like to acknowledge that the land we meet on belongs to the traditional territory of a number of Indigenous peoples, including the Apache, the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas, the Kickapoo Tribe of Texas, the Ysleta del sur Pueblo, the Lipan Apache Tribe, the Texas Band of Yaqui Indians, and the Coahuitlecan.
Additionally, Texas is and has been home to the Caddo, Comanche, Kiowa, Wichita, Chickasaw, and Waco nations. We honor and thank the Indigenous peoples connected to this territory where we gather, and give gratitude to this land on which we meet. We work to decolonize our practices, and make our center an inclusive space for all.
