While I was in the United Kingdom, the department received the news that it had been awarded a big grant that will enhance our geospatial programming. Thanks to Dr. Christina Hupy and numerous faculty in and out of our department, the Geospatial Education Initiative grant will have a big impact on our department and opportunities for our students. Please read the recent press release for the details and anticipate exciting outcomes.
Now, mid-summer is behind us and preparations for the fall semester have already begun. I will try to catch us up on some of the events and activities in which we have been involved.
