The Keck Geology Consortium is focused on enriching undergraduate education through development of high-quality research experience. As an independent non-profit organization, housed at Pomona College, the Consortium establishes its program priorities based on the educational philosophies of the member colleges: dedication to excellence in undergraduate education, offering students comprehensive and rigorous educational opportunities that promote intellectual growth, integrity, responsibility, and a sense of both individuality and membership in community.
The Consortium has been a fundamental component of the undergraduate-research landscape for 26 years, supporting more than 1400 students from over 100 schools across the nation. “Keck” has a tangible meaning in the geoscience community: talented students gaining field experience supported by dedicated, master teachers.
2016 Symposium: The 2016 Keck Symposium will be held April 21-24 at Oberlin College
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to severe cuts to our funding from the National Science Foundation, students for 2015 and 2016 projects will only be recruited from the 18 Keck-member institutions
