100 Years of Making a World of Difference

Clark President Wallace W. Atwood launched the Graduate School of Geography in 1921 to establish an area of graduate research excellence. Today, Clark Geography is a global leader in innovative theory-driven research.

On April 13-15, 2023, we celebrated 100 years of Clark Geography and the impact our scholars have made on the world.
