The Committee on Geographical Sciences offers a geospatial perspective on fundamental issues in the urban, environmental, and social sciences. The main area of interest is the interaction between physical/natural environments, built environments, and people, utilizing a geospatial perspective to explore issues that impact neighborhoods, cities, regions, and global communities. Examples topics include: cultural landscapes and morphological agency, the social justice of urban design, the impact of climate change on urban sustainability, and the geo-visualization of economic disparities. Our faculty pursue research that is spatial, place-based, and policy-oriented.
