The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is now accepting advance orders for the Earth Science Week 2018 Toolkit. The Toolkit contains educational materials for all ages that correspond to this year's event theme, "Earth as Inspiration."
The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) and the European Federation of Geologists (EFG) have agreed to mutually recognize continuing education units (CEUs). This arrangement allows European Geologist (EurGeol) title holders and AIPG Certified Professional Geologists (CPGs) to seek CEUs from either organization, significantly expanding the course offerings to both groups.
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) has published a consensus document which outlines strategies for identifying and addressing issues of workplace harassment in the geosciences. An ad hoc committee consisting of representatives from ten geoscience associations or institutions from across industry and academia was convened by AGI to examine the topic of harassment. This same committee ultimately drafted the consensus document, which was formally approved by the AGI Executive Committee on April 9, 2018.
For this year's Earth Science Week (October 14-20, 2018), the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is sponsoring four contests honoring this year’s theme, “Earth as Inspiration.” This year’s competitions will feature the traditional video, photography, visual arts, and essay contests.
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is pleased to announce the release of the Directory of Geoscience Departments, 53rd Edition.
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is pleased to recognize Dr. William A. Thomas, the James S. Hudnall Professor Emeritus of Geology at the University of Kentucky and Visiting Scientist at the Geological Survey of Alabama, with the 2018 Marcus Milling Legendary Geoscientist Medal.
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is pleased to announce the publication of Status of Recent Geoscience Graduates 2017. This report details the results of AGI's Geoscience Student Exit Survey for academic year 2016-2017, documenting trends in geoscience coursework, student experiences, and the immediate career plans of the new graduates. This is the fifth consecutive year of this survey and report, and with this release, consistent trends have emerged about the experiences of postsecondary geoscience students.
Western Water Assessment (WWA) has joined the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) as a Regional Associate. The admission of WWA to the AGI Federation was formally approved by the AGI Executive Committee and made effective on March 19, 2018.
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) congratulates Ryan Edwards on his selection as the 2018-2019 William L. Fisher Congressional Geoscience Fellow. The Fisher Fellowship offers geoscientists the unique opportunity to spend a year in Washington, D.C., working as a staff member in the office of a member of Congress or with a congressional committee. Edwards will begin his Fellowship on September 1, 2018, after receiving his Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Princeton University later this spring.
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) congratulates Master's student Anna Stanczyk and doctoral student Nicole Shibley as the 2018 recipients of the Harriet Evelyn Wallace Scholarship. This highly competitive scholarship, which is awarded to women pursuing graduate degrees in geoscience, provides a $5,000 award for one academic year. Wallace Scholars who are continuing their graduate studies are eligible to apply for the award a second time.
