Visiting Geographical Scientist Program Seeks Speaker Nominations

December 12, 2012

Gamma Theta Upsilon (GTU) is looking for nominations to the Visiting Geographical Scientist Program (VGSP) list of speakers. The Visiting Geographical Scientist Program is funded through GTU (the geography honor society) and managed by the Association of American Geographers. VGSP speakers, who must be GTU members, have the opportunity to bring new knowledge and interesting perspectives to geography departments across the country. Speakers usually visit at least two schools on a trip in order to meet with geography students and faculty, give presentations, share research, and talk with administrators about the importance of geography in higher education. Small colleges/universities in underserved regions are especially encouraged to apply for our grants to bring in VGSP speakers. If you are willing to participate and would like to be featured on our approved list of VGSP speakers, please email current GTU President Dr. Tom Wikle or call him at 405-744-7978.
