Mission

The mission of the Geography and Urban Planning Department at UW Oshkosh is to provide students with an understanding of the elements that influence the social and physical environment at both the local and global scale.

We see our role as equipping students with the knowledge to deal with the challenges of a rapidly changing world by teaching them critical thinking and problem solving skills. We seek to advance knowledge through research and to share this knowledge with our students, our colleagues and the broader community.
