Visiting Geoscientist Program Committee

The function of the Committee on Visiting Geoscientist Program is to provide college and university students worldwide a balanced picture of geosciences in the petroleum, energy minerals, and environmental industries; provide information about careers in the geosciences; present a positive image of a geoscience professional; and encourage geoscience career options for young scientists of high caliber. These goals will be achieved through direct student contact during college and university visits by active geoscientists. To maintain active status as a VGP, each committee member must complete at least one visit per fiscal year.
