Cultural Enrichment Center

The Cultural Enrichment Center (CEC) serves the University of Houston-Downtown through the development of programs that enrich the academic life of our community while celebrating the cultural and ethnic diversity of our students, staff, faculty, and the Houston community at large. 

The Center sponsors, organizes, and supports events such as lectures, readings, performances, concerts, and exhibitions by national and international artists, writers, and public intellectuals, often partnering with academic departments and with community arts organizations such as Fotofest, Houston Poetry Fest, Inprint, Inc., and Writers in the Schools. Through our programs, we acknowledge the importance of music, art, and the written and spoken word to our academic vitality.
