Geography

Why geography @ Binghamton?

The goals of the Department of Geography are:

  • to provide students quality academic instruction in geography
  • to foster and advance teaching, research and publication in the discipline of geography
  • to provide the expertise of geographers to the community at large so that public and private sector decision makers may enhance the quality of their decisions.

With heavy hearts we report the death of Professor Florence Margai. We have all lost a wonderful person, educator, and scholar!
