For Community Groups

We are looking for a community groups –- including businesses, government agencies, non-profit organizations, and university faculty & staff – who need students with geographic skills.

We see our internships and projects as partnerships: both an opportunity for us to offer skills to the community, but also as a chance for our students to learn more about companies, organizations, and career opportunities available to geographers.

Our students have a broad variety of skill sets, including GIS, cartography and analysis of environmental and social data. More specifically, our students can help with tasks requiring:

  • GIS digitizing
  • GIS analysis
  • Cartography
  • Community surveys
  • Community interviews
  • Visualization of spatial data
  • Communication (oral and written)
  • Review of past projects
  • Statistical data gathering & analysis
  • Mobile apps for spatial data collection

 If you have an internship opportunity or project, please email our Community Geographer Jennifer Mapes.
