Face in the CrowdThe American Association of Geographers announces a newly created award recognizing excellence in Geography programs at U.S. colleges and universities. The annual award and cash prize honors Geography departments and programs within blended departments that have significantly enhanced the prominence and reputation of Geography as a discipline and demonstrated the characteristics of a strong and engaged academic unit.

The 2017 Award for Masters Program Excellence will honor a non-Ph.D.-granting Geography program at a master’s level. AAG recognizes that these programs play an important role in educating future geographers and promoting the discipline to a wider world, but that they tend not to be included in national rankings within the Academy.

Hurry — the deadline for nominations is June 30, so send in your nomination soon!
