Welcome to the Department of Geography, Environment, and Planning (GEP). Over the past three years we have combined our Geography and Environmental Studies and Planning departments to create a new, more robust and flexible Geography and Environment degree. Our department's mission is to promote excellence in teaching and research through five areas of focus; understanding human-environment conflict and collaboration, building resilience with environmental systems, the application of geospatial and quantitative analyses to solve complex environmental and societal problems, designing resource-resilient and socially just communities, and planning urban spaces for sustainability. We prepare students for careers in environmental professions, for gratuate studies, and for their role as informed and thoughtful global citizens.
