Promoting geographic literacy from the Eastern Shore to Garrett County
The Maryland Geographic Alliance (MGA) is a network of university faculty, K-12 educators, and a wide array of organizations and institutions working to promote and enhance geographic education across Maryland. MGA is headquartered at Towson University, where it is focused on rebuilding and strengthening its network of professional geographers and educators.
Professional development is a major goal of the Maryland Geographic Alliance. Since 1989, more than 14,000 educators have participated in our programs that emphasize geography content and incorporate hands-on activities. Workshops, summer institutes, and mini courses provide specific support for teachers of middle school world cultures, AP human geography, and geospatial technologies.
