GEOGRAPHY AWARENESS WEEK is November 12-16, 2018, an initiative promoted by National Geography Education. As part of the nationwide effort to raise awareness of geography as a scientific discipline, geographers will visit local schools to give presentations on geographic topics of interest.

UCSB Geography Outreach Committee is looking for volunteers. Presentations will depend on you and the teacher you sign up for. Topics can vary depending on your interests and the teacher's requests.

November 1st at 3:30 pm there will be an optional coffee meeting in the Department Lounge on the 4th Floor of Ellison Hall. This will be an opportunity to discuss ideas for presentations, find resources for a presentation, get feedback from those who have participated before, and find a partner if the presenters would like to do a joint presentation.

To sign up for Geography Awareness Week, please complete the survey at https://goo.gl/forms/pznkiQQ9aa9DQu6p2 by November 2. If you have any questions, please email ucsb.geog.outreach@gmail.com

Say hello to Professor Dan Montello, the first faculty member for our #FacultyFriday series! 👋🏻 The undergraduate courses he teaches are Geography 5, 117, 150, and 153C. He especially likes the diversity of topics he gets to teach ☺️ He studies the interaction of mind and environment 🧠🌏 Dan adores the incredible breadth of geography- the fact nothing is completely unrelated to it...
Did you know he grew up on an farm and traveled around the country to take care of a championship herd of dairy goats at state fair animal shows? 🐐😱✨
