Department Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Department of Geology to deliver excellence in teaching, research, and service so that our students are equipped with the knowledge to understand and predict how our planet works and to apply that knowledge to the key challenges facing society today: meeting demands for energy, mineral, water, and food, while responsibly managing our environment.

New Geosciences Building

We are actively raising funds for a new geosciences facility. We are excited about the proposed facility, what it could mean for our ability to train future geoscientists, and the progress we have made so far! Details about the facility and our fundraising efforts are available here.
