GEODES serves the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz
We aim to provide a safe space that fosters community and mutual support among the entire Earth and Planetary Science Department: including faculty members, researchers, staff, post-doctoral scholars, graduate students, and undergraduates.
GEODES presents unique networking opportunities between students and faculty within the Earth and Planetary Science department. We also facilitate professional development events for Earth Science students, often engaging the larger Bay Area geoscience community.
We help raise awareness of issues known to limit the participation and success of women and other minorities in geosciences. We also provide strategies to address these issues through workshops that include open dialogue and sharing experiences.
