Sponsored Sessions, Events, and Programs

NAGT is proud to sponsor programs, activities, and events in support of the mission of the organization. Sessions and Events that may be of interest to the NAGT membership are excellent candidates for sponsorship.

Programs are long-term efforts with multiple activities and promotional efforts. They may be funded by external agencies (e.g. NSF) or funded by the organization requesting sponsorship (e.g. AGU). Sponsorship of a program implies endorsement of the entire program, including its goals and all activities Examples include On the Cutting Edge, Teach the Earth, Building Strong Geoscience Departments, and many more.

Events include meeting sessions, field trips, short courses, and other short-term activities. Sponsorship of an event implies endorsement of that event only.

Sponsorship Policy

Revised 13 November, 2006
Revised and Approved by the NAGT Executive Committee, 16 March, 2019

The National Association of Geoscience Teachers seeks opportunities to support and promote a wide variety of geoscience education opportunities. For that reason, NAGT sponsors activities led by other organizations, groups, and individuals that are aligned with our mission and goals and abide by our ethics policy and code of conduct. The purposes of sponsorship are:

  1. To establish collaborations and cooperation between NAGT, its members, and other organizations
  2. To enhance the visibility and impact of geoscience education efforts
  3. To engage or expand NAGT membership

Sponsorship generally falls into two categories:

  • Programs: Programs are long-term efforts with multiple activities and promotional efforts. They may be funded by external agencies (e.g. NSF) or funded by the organization requesting sponsorship (e.g. AGU). Sponsorship of a program implies endorsement of the entire program, including its goals and all activities. (See all NAGT Sponsored Programs.)
    • Approval: Program sponsorship must be approved by a majority vote of the NAGT Executive Committee
    • Expectations for sponsored program: NAGT must be acknowledged as a sponsor on all materials associated with the program; if a website is associated with the project, the project website should provide a link to NAGT's web page; program agrees to abide by the NAGT Ethics Policy and Code of Conduct
    • Expectations of NAGT: NAGT will promote all activities of the sponsored program; if a website is associated with the project, NAGT will provide a link to the website
    • Apply for program sponsorship
  • Single events: Events include meeting sessions, field trips, short courses, and other short-term activities. Sponsorship of an event implies endorsement of that event only. (See all NAGT Sponsored Sessions and Events.)
    • Approval: Event sponsorship must be approved by the NAGT Executive Committee officer who serves as the GSA Joint Technical Program Committee representative
    • Expectations for sponsored event: NAGT must be acknowledged as a sponsor of the event; NAGT Code of Conduct applies to event
    • Expectations of NAGT: NAGT will promote the event
    • Apply for sponsorship of an event or session

Individuals or organizations seeking collaboration or sponsorship for a proposal that is not yet funded should contact the Executive Director to discuss options and opportunities.
