Geoscience Education and Diversity

The Directorate for Geosciences (GEO) recognizes that active support of geoscience education and workforce development must be a significant element of GEO's mission to promote the overall health of the geoscience enterprise. This commitment extends beyond the familiar tradition of support for the training of graduate students to embrace geoscience education reform at the undergraduate and pre-college levels and active outreach to the public.  Included in these activities are focused efforts to broaden participation of underrepresented groups in the geosciences.
