Dedicated to geography education since 1991

The Vermont Geographic Alliance (VGA) was established in 1991 by K-12 teachers, college and university faculty, and interested citizens. The VGA is part of a nationwide alliance movement which includes all 50 States

We are supported by a grant from the National Geographic Society Education Foundation and in-kind support from Castleton State College and Saint Michael's College. Our partners include the State Department of Education. The VGA Coordinator for the 20142015 Program Year is Scott Roper of Castleton State College.

Our Vision...

We envision a geographically literate Vermont where all citizens use geographic information and spatial connections to make far-reaching decisions that create an increasingly livable world. 

 

Our Mission...

The VGA will provide and promote opportunities for advancing geographic literacy and awareness for Vermont's citizens through a variety of programs, polity, and partnership initiatives.
