Give To Geography

What Your Donations Support

Donations to the Department are used in two principal ways.  First, they are used to support class-related field trips that would otherwise be impossible given our departmental budget.  These field trips are associated with physical geography, human geography and planning courses and have recently included visits to Rocky Mountain National Park, planning and economic development offices in Ft. Collins, the Snowy Range, Vedauwoo, the Wind River Reservation, Medicine Bow and Hanna, among other destinations.  We feel strongly in the Department that geography is a field discipline and first-hand experience from these field trips greatly benefits our students.

The second principal way that donations are used is to promote undergraduate and graduate professional activity by supporting student participation at professional meetings.  Such experiences can be life changing for our students as they see faculty and students from Wyoming and other universities presenting the results of their research efforts.  This past fall the Great Plains-Rocky Mountain Division of the Association of American Geographers meeting was held in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Nine students attended the meeting with four of them presenting the results of their research.  This spring our national meeting will be held in Chicago, Illinois and we have four students attending and presenting research papers. Without generous donations from our alumni and friends it would be impossible for us to support our students in this manner.

Should you wish to visit us on a future trip to Laramie, please do not hesitate to drop by our main office in the Arts and Sciences building.  It is always a pleasure to meet and thank in person those who generously support the Department and its activities.
