Geoscience COVID-19 Study to Focus on Permanent Changes from the Pandemic

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is pleased to announce that its Geoscience COVID-19 Study has been extended into a third and final phase thanks to continued support by the National Science Foundation (Award #2029570). This final phase of the study will track the transition of instructional and work intervention strategies used during the pandemic into their adoption as permanent approaches used within academia and the workforce.

Geoscience COVID-19 Impacts Study Update: Examining Impacts and Resilience within Academia

Friday, April 8, 2022

The AGU Heads and Chairs program and the American Geosciences Institute are pleased to be offering a free online webinar and discussion about the latest results from the ongoing Geoscience COVID-19 Impacts study as it pertains to changes in instructional activities, academic department operations, and the changes that faculty and students have navigated since early 2020. AGI staff will examine the impacts and resilience within academia as departments, faculty, and students have adapted to changing instructional and operational environments over the past three years. This will be an open discussion about the survey results and about insights from attendees on how their departments, faculty, and students have weathered the COVID-19 pandemic.

Funding for this project is provided by the National Science Foundation (Award #2029570). The results and interpretation of the survey are the views of the American Geosciences Institute and not those of the National Science Foundation.

2020-21 Recent Graduate Surveys: A Look at Emerging Trends

Friday, March 25, 2022

Please join the AGU Heads and Chairs program and the American Geosciences Institute as we discuss the results of the 2020-21 Recent Graduate Surveys and consider emerging trends. This webinar serves as a refresh and expansion on the November 2021 Heads and Chairs discussion, and takes a look at the final results of the 2020-21 Recent Graduate Surveys as well as associated employment trend data from the COVID-19 impacts on the geosciences to examine what last year’s graduates experienced. In addition, we will discuss some emerging trends in workforce, including the rapid contraction in not only the overall U.S. workforce, but also of undergraduate students and what that may or may not portend for the geosciences, with an intent to have a group conversation about current department experiences in this changing human capital environment.
