It's been a while . . . but big news continues

Yes, the absence of any posts would suggest the absence of anything to post about, but that is hardly our department's reality.  Indeed, it has been a whirlwind since the end of April, between the end of the semester activities (CERCA week, Department Banquet, Final Exams, Graduation), some family needs that took me to Michigan a few times, work-related travel to Scotland, England and Turkey.  

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.
