The Connecticut Geographic Alliance was established in 1987 as an organization of educators, business people and other citizens dedicated to improving geographic education in Connecticut. Our members include teachers and administrators from most Connecticut towns, geography and education faculty from the state's colleges and universities, and concerned citizens in business and government.

The mission of the Connecticut Geographic Alliance is to promote the increase and diffusion of geographic knowledge, foster innovation in geographic education, and encourage stewardship and conservation of Earth's natural and cultural resources in pre-kindergarten through college. We seek to improve geographic literacy in Connecticut by promoting student mastery of geography as a core subject area, providing content and leadership training for teachers, offering in-service programs that use geography and geospatial technologies to address broad interdisciplinary, environmental, urban and multicultural issues, making the National and State Geography Standards an integral part of the Social Studies, providing family programs at the K-5 and Middle School levels.
