The Geosciences Program at Colorado Mesa University aims to provide knowledge for society through excellence in teaching, development of research, and experiential learning. We take pride in being a welcoming and vibrant community that fosters critical thinking and intellectual curiosity and provides highly trained individuals and researchers that support the workforce of Colorado’s western slope.


We aim to prepare students to become the scientific minds that lead paths to develop and contribute to our local, national, and global communities. We welcome any partnership interested in supporting this effort.

In the Geosciences Program at Colorado Mesa University, students have opportunities to conduct high-impact research, work with local communities in the unique geological landscapes of Western Colorado, and join a community dedicated to collaboration, inclusion, respect, and excellence.
