Corporate & Foundation Giving

It is good business to invest in the Jackson School of Geosciences.

The geosciences are particularly hard hit by the aging of the technical workforce. At the same time, demand for geoscience expertise is higher than ever. It is anticipated that by 2030, there will be a national shortage of 30,000 geoscientists.

To meet social and industry needs for geoscience talent and research, the Jackson School partners with companies and foundations to develop mutually beneficial relationships.

Research Collaborations

The Jackson School is unique among peers because two thirds of our school consists of organized research units – the Institute for Geophysics (UTIG) and the Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG). Along with the Department of Geological Sciences (DGS), these units train students and produce research that makes significant impacts on the scientific community, industry and society as a whole. To explore research partnerships, visit the Industry Collaborations page.
