The mission of The Curriculum Center for Family and Consumer Sciences is to produce and disseminate instructional materials that support family and consumer sciences programs and to provide related pre-service and in-service professional development to educators and administrators within those program areas.

The Center is the only curriculum center in the nation that specializes in the development of curriculum materials for family and consumer sciences content areas. We support teachers with a broad range of resources, from print to multimedia to in-service training.


The Center is located on the Texas Tech University campus in the tower basement of the College of Human Sciences building.


We carry online curriculum materials for thirty-six FCS courses (with more being added each year), additional print resources, and over 150 DVDs. Our customers include educators across the country.
