Research in Geographic Education

Research in Geographic Education

The Grosvenor Center publishes a scholarly journal, Research in Geographic Education, that provides an outlet for significant research in a variety of disciplines related to geographic education. In addition, items are published periodically that reflect the mission of the center. Launched by the center in 2008, the International Geography Education Series (IGES) aims to promote geography and geographic education in the United States and around the world. The first volume, Geography Education: Pan American Perspectives, represents the first step of the IGES Project. Future volumes will focus on several important topics in Geography and Geography Education. IGES aims to reach scholars, students and the community as a whole.

In an effort to improve public awareness and geographic literacy, especially among local policy makers and officials, the center, with funding from the National Geographic Society Education Foundation, developed a 12-page pamphlet titled "Why Geography Is Important" that encapsulates the essence of geography and why teaching it in United States public schools is so vital.
