“The Department of Geography recognizes and supports the rights of the Mizzou student activists who are advocating for institutional change at the University of Missouri. We are concerned about the mental and physical health of our students and their personal safety as this crisis continues. We stand ready to work with students, faculty, and administrators to create the institutional change needed.”

Congratulations to Mizzou Geography major Erik Mueller who was recently awarded one of 22 $5,000 scholarships provided by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF). The program furthers the advancement of geospatial intelligence tradecraft by granting scholarship awards to promising students pursuing a degree in the geospatial sciences or a related field. All scholarship recipients were selected by USGIF’s Scholarship Subcommittee, which evaluated applicants based on academic and professional excellence.
I'm pleased to report that Mizzou Advantage has fully funded our proposal, Digital Indigenous Heritages.
I'd like to congratulate Joanna Hearne and Mark Palmer for their research that has been recognized by Mizzou Advantage, and thank those Peace Studies faculty who have helped develop the proposal, especially Amit, Charles, and Michael.
