Our Mission, Vision, and Values will help guide you; our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion will help you find your place in our community; and our Geneseo Learning Outcomes for Baccalaureate Education will help you build a portfolio of skills that are essential in the 21st century.

The course introduces students to geographical field observation as they examine the human-environment interactions and adaptations in Southern Alberta and British Columbia.
