Director's Message

Welcome to the Center for Applied Interdisciplinary Research Web site:


Our mission in the Center for Applied Interdisciplinary Research (CAIR) is  to foster collaborative research, grant proposal-writing, and experiential student learning to improve the quality of life for children and families.

Texas State University has always recognized the central importance of collaborative, interdisciplinary work.  Our faculty, students, alumni, and friends work together to accomplish our mission.  We are pleased to work with many different academic units.  As you peruse our web pages, I think you will gain a sense of the Center’s vital role in working with faculty, students, and the community.

We want to hear from you, and hope you will visit us.  If you want more information about the Center, please e-mail us or call us at (512) 245-1784. We look forward to hearing from you.
