The Cowan Center is the focal point for performing arts on campus, as well as in the city of Tyler and the Northeast Texas region. It houses state-of-the-art lecture and performance facilities to include Vaughn Auditorium. Jim and Bonna Bess Vaughn Auditorium comfortably seats 2,000 patrons in a warm acoustical environment. A full Broadway-sized stage includes a hydraulically-controlled orchestra pit floor which may be raised for concert use, or lowered for musical theatre productions.
