The National Center for Research in Geography Education (NCRGE) is a research consortium for transformative research in geography education, with co-headquarters at the American Association of Geographers (AAG) and Texas State University. NCRGE’s mission is to build capacity for research that advances theory, deepens knowledge, challenges thinking, and supports evidence-based practices in geography education.
NCRGE pursues its mission through a variety of activities and programs, including:
- Seeking public and private sector funding support for the NCRGE research coordination network.
- Linking geography education and geospatial technology to education research in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).
- Building a research clearinghouse to promote the sharing of data, instruments, and knowledge.
- Coordinating and encouraging research collaborations across institutional and disciplinary boundaries.
- Sponsoring research conferences and workshops.
- Expanding opportunities for graduate research in geography education.
- Supporting research planning and site visits through a fellowship program.
- Publishing the scholarly journal, Research in Geographic Education.
