A little bit about us!
The Keck Geology Consortium is focused on enriching undergraduate education through development of high-quality research experience. As an independent 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 over 25 years, supporting more than 1100 students from over 80 schools across the nation. "Keck" has a tangible meaning in the geoscience community: talented students gaining field experience supported by dedicated, master teachers.
