Thank You to Our Donors

There are many ways to support the Department of Geography. Financial contributions are most welcome, but we also appreciate our alumni who give their time to speak to our current students and new graduates by providing advice about careers in specific areas. Thank you!

The Department of Geography appreciates your financial support. Every dollar contributed to the department has a direct impact on our students and faculty. Your gift is important to us and helps support critical opportunities for students and faculty alike, including lectures, travel support, and any number of educational events that augment the classroom experience.

For more information about this and other funds in the department, or additional ways you can help, please contact Jennifer Messer, Director of Development, at 706-542-0068 or email at
