Our alumni are valued members of our community and partners in maintaining excellence in our teaching, research, and outreach facilities. Their contributions have built the E. I. Leith Cretaceous Menagerie, enhanced our teaching equipment and collections, and ensured that our students have many opportunities for scholarships and bursaries. An outstanding level of support from departmental alumnus Clayton H. Riddell has enabled major initiatives within the Faculty of Environment, Earth, and Resources that have greatly benefitted the Department's teaching and research programs.
Our students and staff participate in outreach programs and events, including Career Trek, APEGM Engineering and Geoscience Week, EdGeo workshops for science teachers, workshops for First Nations students, school tours and visits to schools, and science fairs. Recent initiatives include a partnership with the Northern Manitoba Mining Academy to enhance education in support of the resource industry in the north.
