People

The geology faculty are a particularly active group in research and teaching. Most are nationally known and many are international experts in their respective areas. Two are currently editors of international journals, several serve as members of journal editorial review boards, and all have published numerous articles in professional journals; many have also published books. More than half of the faculty have been nominated for, and/or received, various teaching excellence awards given both within the University and by outside organizations. Most of the faculty instruct graduate as well as undergraduate students.See our Department Handbook for official policies.
