Department of Geosciences - Our Mission

Our Mission

The Department of Geosciences is dedicated to advancing an understanding of the Earth Sciences in students at Fort Lewis College.  We employ place-based curricula using the physical setting of Durango to enhance student experiences and developmental skills.  Courses are designed to facilitate effective communication, critical thinking and problem solving.  We strive to provide an understanding of Earth processes that are integral to political, economic and social decisions in the future.
