SGD COVID-19 Updates

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

The School of Geography & Development has moved to remote instruction for the rest of the semester.  If you are taking one of our classes this semester you should have been contacted by your instructor with plans for completion of the course.

Here are two key websites to help instructors with the transition online:  

The university has established a special grading policy for the Spring 2020 semester.

Student Emergency Fund has also been established.

There is a frequently updated set of additional resources for student assistance (IT, food, wellness, housing and more).

Almost everyone in the School (faculty, graduate students, staff, advisors) will be working from home as of March 23rd 2020.  The School, our classrooms and the labs are closed until further notice. We have established some points of contact for you if you have any questions or need for assistance.
