Sponsorships

Partner with us to help support well-informed public policy and decision making with expert, impartial geoscience information by sponsoring AGI webinars and/or a series of information products hosted through AGI's Geoscience Currents channel.

Geoscience Currents: Data Briefs, Factsheets, Case Studies

Geoscience Currents transmit snapshots of the many facets of the geoscience profession, in-depth case studies of how geoscience is applied, factsheets that provide rigorous introductions to a range of geoscience topics, workforce trends, and career paths.

AGI’s data briefs provide the latest information on the many facets of the geoscience profession, including career information such as employment projects, salary trends, career trajectories for recent geoscience graduates, information for departments regarding metrics related to student enrollments, degrees, demographics of the professoriate, etc., to economic drivers of the geoscience workforce. 

AGI provides in-depth information on geoscience issues affecting communities around the U.S. via its case studies and factsheets series. Case studies are written by geoscientists for decision makers and provide specific examples of how research in the geosciences can be applied to the decision-making process. Factsheets provide short, clearly written, and scientifically rigorous introductions to a range of topics, and suggest additional free resources for further exploration.

AGI staff and an external review team work with the authors of these information products to ensure that the products are written and presented in a format and style that meets the needs and expectations of decision makers. These products are published in attractive web-based and printable formats.

As a sponsor, your brand will be exposed to participants via:

In the post-COVID Pandemic era, there is growing evidence that a mental health crisis is spreading across the country. Studies have reported that child mental health, in general, and College-aged students, in particular, have deteriorated across the nation over the past few years (APA, 2022). Mental Health stigma, limited mental health tools and resources, and a sense of "disconnection" borne out of social-distancing policies are contributing factors.
