Promoting geographic literacy from the Eastern Shore to Garrett County
The Maryland Geographic Alliance is a dynamic network of geographers, K-12 educators, and teacher educators working together to promote geographic education across Maryland. Headquartered at Towson University, MGA is focused on strengthening and expanding its network of professional geographers and educators. We champion geographic literacy for inquiry learning, and we embrace geography as a key to civic engagement and global understanding in the 21st century.
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 webinars provide support for elementary, middle, and high school teachers. Recent professional development focuses on the teaching of world cultures, AP Human Geography, and geospatial technologies.
MGA is proud to be a 501(c)3 non-profit organization registered in Maryland, and we welcome donations to support our initiatives in geography education. All donations are fully tax-deductible. To donate today, contact Todd Kenreich at email@example.com.
