Geological Sciences faculty are committed to highly effective teaching as well as to the quality of the scientific research that characterizes the department. Faculty educate students to be well-prepared geologists who can help to solve problems related to energy, resources and the environment during this important phase of human history.

The department is enriched in a variety of ways through the power of charitable giving, including student scholarships, student and faculty research support, and travel funds for students and faculty.
