Survey of geoscience departments finds shared goals and challenges

Abstract

While the survey found significant variations between institution types, the degree of common perspective across institution types was striking. This suggests that we can all benefit from sharing best practices, resources, and success stories. The Building Strong Geoscience Departments project Web site (http://serc.carleton.edu/departments/index.html) has been designed to share successes and provide resources that address many of the issues raised in the survey, and includes pages on successful curricula, student recruitment strategies, and interdisciplinary research and teaching. Project principle investigators are Cathy Manduca, Carleton College, Northfield, Minn.; Heather Macdonald and Geoff Feiss, College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, Va.; and article coauthor Richardson. Workshop participants have shared their successful strategies, and these and other resources can be found at http://serc.carleton. edu/departments/workshops/index.html.
