The Kansas Geographic Alliance (KGA) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing geographic literacy among the citizens of Kansas. The KGA is funded by the National Geographic Education Foundation with additional support from Kansas State University, Fort Hays State University, and the State Department of Education.
The mission of the KGA is to promote and support geographic literacy and education throughout Kansas.
Our vision is that the KGA will be the valued and respected source for expertise on geography and the teaching of geography for the citizens of Kansas.
We envision a geographically literate Kansas society that uses their geographic knowledge to support and maintain a healthy environment as a base for strong communities and a vibrant economy, to help the population to make informed decisions as citizens of Kansas, the United States, and the planet.
While the KGA is primarily a professional development organization for educators, membership is open to individuals in government, business, and the general public.
