The Department of Geosciences at UWM stands in solidarity with our Black and underrepresented minority colleagues, students, and community members with the goal to end injustice and discrimination of all kinds.  We have signed the Call to Action for an Anti-Racist Science Community from Geoscientists of Color: Listen, Act, Lead , and will continue to strive to remove barriers within our community to be more diverse and inclusive.

The UWM Department of Geosciences is an educational community of students, researchers, and teachers focused on scientific examination of the Earth. We ask important questions, create new knowledge, and communicate information about Earth’s properties and processes through deep-time. Through our research, study, and teaching, we aim to help create a scientifically informed society and enable our students to achieve their professional goals. We welcome all who share our intellectual curiosity about the Earth; our diverse community includes people from a variety of intellectual, religious, class, cultural, and political perspectives.
