The American Association of Geographers (AAG) have launched a dashboard to provide members access to data on geography and geographers. These data can be used to help support applications to establish new degree programs, or encourage students to major in geography and provide insight into the status of geography literacy and national trends in higher education.
The Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME) Foundation is pleased to announce the application period for the Ph.D. Fellowship and Academic Career Development Grants will run December 1, 2016 – January 31, 2017. The program was implemented in 2015 to address the long-term sustainability of U.S. mining engineering, mineral processing and extractive metallurgy academic degree programs, and particularly the declining number of senior faculty members teaching those programs.
The American Association of Geographers is still seeking letters of attestation for a new Advanced Placement course in Geographic Information Science & Technology (GIS&T) from high schools and colleges/universities. They currently have 78/100 letters from colleges/universities and 73/250 from high schools. Please direct this information to all interested parties on AAG's behalf.
