Departmental Vision

The Department of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Science (EOAS) conducts research and offers instruction in the fields of Environmental Science, Geology, Oceanography, and Meteorology. The Department’s goals are to contribute to scientific knowledge by conducting world‐class research, and to be a source of information for the public and decision makers. The department offers undergraduate degrees in environmental sciences with a strong interdisciplinary core, and in geology and meteorology. Graduate degrees are offered in environmental science, geology, oceanography and meteorology at MS and PhD levels.

To offer the best education, our tenure track faculty personally teach and mentor students, minimizing the role of adjuncts. EOAS faculty are resolute in the belief that their science plays an essential role in the life of the University, state and nation and in the education of tomorrow’s leaders. They are committed to expanding and strengthening that role. EOAS faculty are also committed to offering students rigorous field‐camps, research experiences and cruises, and internships. These experiences are essential to a rounded education. EOAS retains excellence in its established areas of research with vigorous recruitment of highly qualified graduate students and faculty.

Diversity Statement

At EOAS we continuously work to create an inclusive department that fully reflects the diverse community we serve. We seek to accomplish this by recruiting a diverse faculty, staff, and student body and promoting and strengthening under-represented groups within EOAS. Here, we build on an inclusive culture in which difference is welcomed and valued. We embrace the responsibility of providing and nurturing an affirming climate that supports and celebrates individual identities across a broad spectrum while ensuring equitable treatment. We strongly believe that different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences drive creativity and innovation, and deliver better results.

We have a zero-tolerance policy towards discrimination of any kind. At EOAS everyone is welcome!
