Center for Integrative Conservation Research

The Center for Integrative Conservation Research (CICR) was established to respond, through research and training, to one of the key challenges facing conservation today: identifying conservation practices and policies that simultaneously preserve biodiversity and serve human needs. CICR promotes the synthesis of social and biological science research methods and conceptual approaches in conservation through an integrative approach to conservation research.

Institute for Behavioral Research

The Institute for Behavioral Research plays an important role on the campus of the University of Georgia. We work to provide services, information, and support that can enhance the quality, comprehensiveness, and relevance of social and behavioral research at the University. From humble beginnings as an interdisciplinary discussion group, we have blossomed into a multifaceted research institute. However, we remain committed to the same core principles of service, scholarship, and accessibility that have characterized the IBR from its inception.


Geographers look at how places interact with each other, and how they are influenced by larger, more global forces. Geographers think big! The Department of Geography offers BS, AB, MS, MA and PhD degrees and certificates in Atmospheric Sciences and Geographic Information Science.
