International Association for Geoscience Diversity (IAGD)

Project Leader: Christopher Atchison

Program Description

The IAGD is a global network of higher education faculty, staff and students, geoscience industry representatives, disabilities education researchers and anyone interested in fostering accessible science. Our goal is to provide training and support to promote inclusive communities of research, instruction, and active engagement for students, faculty, and geoscience practitioners with disabilities. The IAGD has led the development and implementation of accessible and inclusively-designed classroom and field-based instructional strategies that minimize the barriers to full participation for persons with disabilities.
