The GEOPATHS:EXTRA Advancing Undergraduate Geosciences through Integrated Training Experiences (GP-AUGITE) project takes place on the campus at Miami University, Oxford, OH and Miami University, Hamilton, OH, with a number of field sites in Nevada.


This training-focused, student-centered program has been developed in order to enhance the undergraduate geoscience experience and promote career-readiness. Through a set of evidence-based approaches this program integrates experiential learning, relevant disciplinary research, scientific communication, and professional development through certification, into the undergraduate curriculum.

This program aims to foster an exciting, dynamic learning environment by recruiting and mentoring traditional and historically excluded undergraduate students in STEM fields.

The integrative approach aligns to the teacher-scholar model and demonstrates a strong commitment to the training of a STEM-literate population, and a career-ready geoscience workforce.

For more information regarding participation in the AUGITE program, contact either Dr. Claire McLeod at mcleodcl@miamioh,edu (Oxford campus) or Dr. Mark Krekeler at (Hamilton campus).
