Geography studies how physical, biological, and human processes shape the landscape in which we live and cause regions to differ from each other. Geography is everything!
Geographers try to:
To understand coupled human environmental systems in the face of land change
To deliver pertinent information on the vulnerability and resilience of these systems for decision making
Geography is a bridging, integrating, and synthesizing science. We combine our talents with scientists in other disciplines to make a difference as we improve people’s ability to prosper as the land changes. We also use geospatial technology (GIS, Remote Sensing, and GPS) to help solve real-world problems. For more on geospatial technology, click here. In the summer of 2015, we received a 3-year NSF ATE grant for $200,000 to provide professional development for high school teachers and to create a Geospatial Certificate program and career pipeline.
