Student Organizations

Connect with other students through professional and academic organizations.

Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists


The Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists (AEG) contributes to its members’ professional success and the public welfare by providing leadership, advocacy and applied research in environmental and engineering geology. The UMKC chapter of AEG encourages students to get involved in the national AEG organization by learning about new developments in the environmental and engineering geology field and meeting professionals currently working in this field.

Networking with professionals, former alumni and professors has given us the opportunity to host speaker series on various topics related to geology, environmental science, engineering and more.

Students may apply to join AEG during a designated timeframe each semester. Application materials and deadlines will be provided at the beginning of each semester. The requirements to join are set by the national headquarters.

Geology Club of UMKC

The Geology Club of UMKC is a group for enthusiasts of geology and the geosciences. Students from all majors are welcome to join.

We offer field trips and activities for experiential learning on geologic topics, as well as volunteer in environmental service projects in the Kansas City area.

In the past, members of our club have participated in river cleanups, day trips, hiking, Science Night at the Kansas City Zoo and geology talks for K-12 students in local schools. Sharing our enthusiasm for the geosciences with the greater community is an important aspect of Geology Club!

The Student Environmental Coalition of UMKC

The Student Environmental Coalition of UMKC is an inclusive student group open to all UMKC students with an interest in environmental issues and sustainability. Activities range from river cleanups to hosting professional speakers in related fields to nature and earth science field trips and social events.  

We engage with the university campus directly and work cooperatively with groups and clubs with crossover interests. Our events-based, boots-on-the-ground schedule puts leaders and members in direct contact with nature, the community and professionals giving an on- he-job-training experience.
