Updates and Events

Geography is concerned with the location and arrangement in space of human and natural phenomena, and with the interrelationships between people and their environments. Our faculty and students seek solutions to tomorrow’s global challenges today through innovative research in natural and social sciences.

Department News

By 2050, antimicrobial resistant infections are projected to be one of the world’s leading causes of death. The threat posed by antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global health equity challenge as well as a pressing public health concern for high-income countries such as the United States. The threat of AMR is commanding increasing attention amongst research academicians, but there are still significant knowledge gaps as to AMR’s drivers and transmission dynamics. While suspected to be a significant factor, the impact of antibiotic use in livestock, aquaculture, and crops remains poorly characterized, as does the movement of antibiotic resistant bacteria through the environment.
