Scientific discovery and geographical exploration are only influential if we are able to effectively communicate research results with other scholars and the public. By focusing explicitly on enhancing communication, we enable our students and faculty to participate in those professional conversations that can help ensure their scientific and scholarly contributions are significant and enduring.
Your gift to the Communicating Geography Fund will help support conference travel, our ability to bring high profile speakers to the MU campus, and community outreach.Travel funds increase our ability to present research findings at professional conferences and expand the professional networks necessary to effectively engage in complex, social and environmental problems.
Enhancing our speaker’s series allows us to bring a broader spectrum of researchers and practitioners to campus. Community outreach ensures that we engage with the public in helping them understand what professional geographers do regarding research and teaching.
