CRES Community

It's All About Connection

Students walking across campus

We believe students thrive when they form relationships that make them feel connected — to each other, to the campus community and to the world around them. With its emphasis on intercultural understanding and community-engaged learning, CRES brings this belief to life.

From small classes and student organizations to opportunities for internships and study abroad, studying CRES at TCU allows you to develop relationships with professors, discover the world and establish a strong academic and professional support network.

You can keep with campus and community events that relate to the CRES mission and values with the News Digest available every second and fourth Tuesday during both the fall and spring semesters and on the events calendar.


TCU Justice Journey

CRES-affiliated faculty and staff lead the TCU Justice Journey, a U.S.-based immersion and community-engaged educational experience in which students travel to sites related to social justice struggles, past and present, and learn from community activists who changed the world.
