Our faculty and staff sets us apart. The Department of Geology and Geological Engineering has the teaching and research faculty to train the next generation of geoscientists and geoengineers. It is our commitment to maintain solid experimental, hands-on, field-oriented, quantitative, and analytical education.
We currently have 18 faculty, 1 teaching faculty, 15 research faculty, and several active emeritus professors. Visit our directories of academic faculty and research faculty to check out individual faculty pages. You will find that we are involved in research from Alaska to southern Chile, and from California through Europe and Africa to the Far East, in addition to many projects here at home in the Rocky Mountains. We also have four excellent staff members in the department who are happy to help.
