Vision and Mission


Texas State’s goal is to provide effective stewardship of the Center’s ecosystem and infrastructure in accordance with the University’s mission. Responsibility for stewardship of the Freeman Center and the fulfillment of this goal has been assigned by the Provost to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs

The main objectives in the management of the Freeman Center are to protect its ecosystems, enable research and educational opportunities within the Freeman Center, and provide access to the Center for service/outreach activities when appropriate.


The Freeman Center provides 3,500 acres of Hill Country habitat and on-site facilities as part of Texas State University. The three-fold mission of research, education and outreach of the Center is enabled by a framework of foundation agreements with Texas State University, a doctoral-granting, emerging research institution dedicated to excellence in serving the research and education needs of Texas and the world beyond. Providing information that enables the good stewardship and sustainable use of Texas land and water resources is a core goal of the Center.
