Geography and Atmospheric Science alumni are integral to our department and are a big part of our community. We love highlighting your achievements and keeping in touch through our newsletters (check out the archive below), and we love hearing from you directly! Alumni are also an essential part of our students' lives, from sharing career information and experiences through career events to being a resource through our Professional Network. The Geography and Atmospheric Science Alumni Board also plays an important role in the department through mentorships, special initiatives, and more. Enjoy the newsletters below and be sure to send us updates so you'll be included in the next one!

Update your alumni information through our friends at the KU Alumni Association. You can also send us information directly at kugeog@ku.edu.

Our alumni have been incredibly generous and have made a real difference in the department through donations that have helped us to maintain excellence, update facilities, support students through scholarships, and much more. In the newsletters you'll find highlights from graduates, scholarship recipients, and learn more about initiatives that have been so greatly aided by donors.
