8. IAGD Student Community
Students are especially encouraged to join and help us continue to build the growing community of students with disabilities in the geosciences. This community will begin to provide a network of academic resources and personal advice for students interested in pursuing geoscience degree programs. The IAGD Student Community is designed to help students navigate the barriers of higher education and workforce development.
Geoscience faculty and instructors: Please encourage your students to join the IAGD network and share their personal perspectives of accessibility in the geosciences. The IAGD network currently has student members who would be willing to speak with any prospective student member and offer mentoring with any barriers they may be facing. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
