The Redd Center encourages the research and teaching of the American West by providing a community for faculty members and students studying the Intermountain West. It also offers a Western American Studies minor for students interested in learning more about the Intermountain West and provides grants to continually research the area in a number of different fields.
The Visiting Scholar Program - Visiting Scholars enjoy the luxury of time away from heavy teaching
loads and other responsibilities so that they can focus almost
exclusively on their research and writing. Visiting Scholars fully
participate in the intellectual life of the Center and the University.
The Visiting Lecturer Program - The Charles Redd Center will provide funds for BYU departments to bring visiting lecturers in western studies to BYU.
Western American Studies Minor - In 1997 the Charles Redd Center developed a western studies minor to
promote the study of the West at BYU. The minor is currently
administered by the American Studies Program and the College of
Humanities Advisement Center. The Redd Center works with the American
Studies Program with internships and other programs.
