Coronavirus Information and Fall 2020 updates (July 10 2020)

Until further notice, our faculty and staff are working remotely,  in accordance with the guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Our offices in the ENR2 Building are closed to the public, but you can reach us at 520-621-5096, Monday–Friday 8am–5pm, or email Amanda Percy (Administration Manager) and Diana Liverman (Director).

Our plans for Fall 2020 are still somewhat uncertain and will depend on the status of COVID-19 in Arizona and related rules.  At this point most faculty and staff are working from home and our office are still closed.  We are offering summer classes online and we look forward to welcoming everyone back for fall semester whether it be online or in person and whether you are from Arizona, other states or are an international student.  We plan to offer some courses fully online (either as live online lectures and discussions or our existing fully online courses with recorded lectures and materials) but we have also listed a significant number of flex/hybrid courses in the updated catalog that will provide in person options for interaction and teaching including socially distanced lectures and meetings with small groups of students outside once the weather cools off.   We will do everything we can to make sure Fall 2020 is an enjoyable semester for our students and that everyone can make good progress on their degrees. 

See the University of Arizona's COVID-19 updates for the latest information on the University's response to the coronavirus pandemic.

We also have additional information and resources for students, faculty, and staff in the School of Geography, Development & Environment.



The School of Geography, Development & Environment explores the complex and interacting spatial, social and environmental patterns and processes that connect and shape the lives and landscapes of our world and our communities. We are committed to making real, lasting change to support just and sustainable futures for all.
