About BSGD

Building Strong Geoscience Departments (BSGD) was a project focused on helping geoscience departments adapt and prosper in a changing and challenging environment. Through workshops, this website, professional society meeting sessions, and publications this project aimed to stimulate discussions and disseminate community expertise on topics such as approaches to core content and curriculum, retaining and recruiting top faculty and students, and maintaining the department as a valued institutional partner. The Building Strong Geoscience Departments program was sponsored by the National Association of Geoscience Teachers, the American Geosciences Institute, the Geological Society of America, and the American Geophysical Union.
