The mission of the South Texas Economic Development Center (STEDC) is to support and advance sustainable economic and community development in South Texas, particularly the Coastal Bend region. STEDC provides consulting, education, research and data services to community stakeholders, including government and economic development agencies, and businesses.

Rising from the pandemic, the Center is making a subtle shift in its mission, which now emphasizes progress that is not just a matter of economic growth, but also individual and social well-being.  

Local Focus. Global Perspective.
