Department Mission

To deliver high quality teaching and learning, impactful research, and engaged outreach.  To develop current and new understandings of the diversity of the Earth’s physical and social systems, the value of spatial perspectives, and connections between peoples and their environments at a variety of geographical scales. To provide students with intellectual skills to synthesize information, be critical thinkers, develop into better and more informed citizens, and find success in employment or further academic training.  

We strive to make positive impacts on people, places and environments that enhance and sustain social and environmental systems for the present and future generations.
