"Make a difference."

Edward H. Harte
We seek science-driven solutions™ for problems facing the Gulf of Mexico to advance its long-term sustainable use and conservation.

The Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi is a multidisciplinary research institute whose work revolves around The Harte Model - connecting science with policy, people, and economics in the Gulf of Mexico region, within the United States and internationally. Our ten research areas work collaboratively on issues facing the Gulf and support the education and mentorship for graduate students to become future Gulf leaders. 

Help us with our mission to achieve an ecologically and economically sustainable Gulf of Mexico.
