Snapshot of Some Past VGSP Visits

The Visiting Geographical Scientist Program seeks to stimulate interest in geography and Gamma Theta Upsilon (GTU) by sponsoring visits by prominent geographers to colleges and universities across the country — especially in small departments that do not have the resources to bring in well-known speakers. Below are examples of the experiences and presentation materials of past visits listed in alpha order by speaker.
