The Geoscience Department (as well as collaborators at
Edinboro, Kutztown, and West Chester universities) have received $33,576 in funding
from the National Science Foundation to host a workshop focused on designing an inclusive geology field
camp for all Pennsylvania State System geoscience programs.
The workshop will be held in early January 2019 and will include faculty,
administrators, and university staff from IUP, Edinboro, Kutztown, and West
Chester. Participants will meet to work through the logistics of creating a
State System-wide inter-university geology course, which has never been done before,
and design the course. Creation of this new inter-university field
course will revolutionize field camp in Pennsylvania.
