Come Celebrate GIS Day With Us During East Asia Week!

November 12, 2019

This week the University of Richmond is celebrating East Asia Week, a cross-campus celebration of International Education Week!  There are so many events on campus- what a great opportunity to learn more about global cultural, physical, and political geographies! 

And the most exciting part of the week? UR is hosting GIS Day as we celebrate its 20th Anniversary this Thursday, November 14th. Our SAL Director Wendy Stout has gone all out planning events for this week, including hosting a Spatial Analysis Lab Intern meet and greet, where our current interns and alums will be in the SAL to show off ongoing research projects and connect with other UR students and faculty. 

After our “Open House”, head over to Jepson Leadership School- the walk is only 30 seconds!- to sit in on some amazing lectures. Our speakers include : Keith VanGraafieland, ESRI’s Product Engineer working on the Living Atlas Ocean, Haitao Wang on Geospatial Development in China, from Virginia Tech, and many more fascinating speakers. For more information, reference our flyer below. You can also contact Professor Wendy Stout via email at:
