UNAVCO manages the NSF geodetic facility (GAGE: Geodesy Advancing Geosciences and EarthScope) which includes a focused program devoted to education, outreach, communications and geo-workforce development. The UNAVCO Education and Community Engagement (ECE) program supports the geophysics and broad geoscience community in collaboration with community members, partner organizations and universities as well as individual principal investigators. This presentation will provide an overview of support services available to the geosciences community with a focus on instructional materials (formal and informal) as well as an overview of the student opportunities available at UNAVCO.
