GIS Around the Campus and Around the World
The role of higher education is to assist students in becoming effective thinkers with the knowledge and skills that will lead them toward becoming meaningful contributors to society. Geographic Information Systems in higher education provide an integrated solution to assist faculty and students with their educational goals.
GIS is no longer just for geography departments. By putting information in the context of geography, GIS can be applied across several fields of study to enhance learning and teaching. GIS can give students the skills they need for careers in health, marketing, environmental studies, engineering, natural resource management and, of course, geography.
