The 2022 UCGIS Symposium will focus on looking forward to what’s next for the geospatial community as society continues to grapple with urgent social and environmental challenges including the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, environmental sustainability, issues of inclusion and diversity, and more. The symposium is an opportunity to bring together experts focused on exploring not only new directions, technologies, and priorities for geospatial science research and education, but also the needs of the future workforce. How can new technologies, methods, data sources, tools, and perspectives provide meaningful support to the geospatial community in describing and developing solutions to these challenges?

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
