Research Consortium for Belizean Studies

 
The Research Consortium for Belizean Studies (RCBS) is a collaborative effort between UT Tyler and other Consortium for Belize Educational Cooperation (COBEC) institutions to create a structured support system for Belize and U.S. scholars engaged in research in Belize. The RCBS's goals are to collaborate and partner with Belizean and US scholars, institutions, and educators; expand our collective capacity; and contribute to the development of elementary, secondary, and higher education in Belize.

Research conducted by the University of Belize faculty and students can be found at UB Faculty of Science & Technology: Research Repository.
