The AAG has a long history of initiating and leading projects designed to enhance the quality of geography education at all levels. We currently offer award-winning materials for teaching geography, online modules for international collaborative learning, and tools for student projects in sustainable development.

The AAG is also directing research projects in graduate education, spatial cognition, workforce development, and international education. We work collaboratively with other geography organizations and professional societies to monitor education policy, support interdisciplinary research on educational topics, and raise awareness of career opportunities in geography.

AAG specialty groups, task forces, and committees oversee a wide variety of award and outreach programs for students, department chairpersons, school teachers, higher education faculty, and professionals working in business, government, and non-profit sectors.
