Welcome to Geography and Environmental Studies

Support G&ES through Giving

Alumni and friends of the Department of Geography & Environmental Studies can contribute to the department using the steps below, provided by the NEIU Foundation. Donations to the Department of G&ES will support G&ES students and programs. We have used our foundation funds in the past to support student travel to professional and academic conferences, to purchase needed equipment used in classes, to help bring excellent speakers to campus, and for events such as the G&ES Graduate Awards Ceremony and the Fall Alumni Picnic and Potluck.  

Your gift  whatever its size  will be greatly appreciated. It will help inspire and support the next generation of graduates from the Department of Geography & Environmental Studies.


The University’s professional fundraising staff are ready to answer questions and to work with you. To learn more, please contact Sylvia Daniels, Director of Development, at s-daniels4@neiu.edu or (773) 442-4231.
