  • Learn what you can do with your geography degree in our “Jobs in Geography” career-centered sessions
  • ESRI-led technical session and panel

What is SEDAAG?

SEDAAG is a regional subdivision of the American Association of Geographers, representing approximately 500 members in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Established in 1947, SEDAAG exists to advance investigations in geography and to encourage the application of geographic findings in education, government, and business.  The Division supports these objectives by organizing an annual academic conference (traditionally held in November); publishing a quarterly peer-reviewed journal (Southeastern Geographer); granting honors to faculty in recognition of excellence in teaching, service, and research; hosting educational and professional development workshops; and supporting student paper and poster awards and a World Geography Bowl competition.
