The Department of Geography & the Environment is made up of a remarkable group of students, faculty and staff. We benefit from our modest size, working in a close-knit community where students are able to connect with colleagues and mentors within our department and across campus. 

Our faculty provide expertise in environmental change, human-environment interactions, urban sustainability and geospatial technologies; all with a focus on addressing current social and environmental issues.
