Geography is the study of people, place, and the environment. Geographers examine the spatial organization of natural processes and human activities and the relationships that form between people and their environment. Maps and geospatial technologies are fundamental tools of the discipline. Our mission is to prepare students with a well-rounded perspective of geographic knowledge and skills that will enable them to interpret social, physical, and environmental influences at local, regional, and global scales. Student interests are paramount, as we strive for excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service.
Cleaner Greener Communities Opportunity
We are working on the first phase of the 'Cleaner—Greener Communities' grant as part of the 6-County Mohawk Valley Region (refer to http://www.sustainablemohawkvalley.com/ for more information on the project).
We are in the project identification stage, and we are holding a public meeting at Herkimer County Community College on March 7 at 6:30 PM. We are looking for input from Students and Faculty from the local Colleges/Universities on sustainable projects across 9 working groups (see Working Groups tab)
