Our faculty, staff and students work in a number of areas important to earth, environment and engineering, ranging from minerals and energy exploration, to ice sheet dynamics, to natural hazards, and water quantity and quality.
An Outstanding Education
We take education seriously, and have excellent teaching facilities, world class laboratory facilities, and access to some of the best field sites in the world.
Geology is important to many areas important to humanity, from hazards to water resources to changing climate. We are training outstanding students to be stewards of our earth’s natural resources.
