The Department of Geography at the University of Oregon is one of the top ten geography programs in the country. We feature faculty and students researching and teaching about the cutting edge of important societal issues, such as racism, climate change, water resources, economic development, land use, conflict, migration, spatial data science, cartography, and more. We offer two major programs of study, Geography and Spatial Data Science and Technology and a minor in Geography.
The Department of Geography knows that a safe environment free of hate, violence, and discrimination is the right of every student and essential for learning to happen.

Resources are available to anyone on campus experiencing or witnessing hate or discrimination at respect.uoregon.edu/
