The Geographic Alliance of Iowa (GAI) was established in 1991 with the support of the National Geographic Society (NGS). The GAI is housed in the Department of Geography at the University of Northern Iowa, the premier teacher education institution in the region.The GAI is composed of K-12 teachers, college and university professors, personnel from a variety of other educational endeavors, and citizens, all of who are concerned with improving geographic instruction in Iowa.

The goal of the GAI  is to promote and enhance the understanding by Iowans of their place in an increasingly interdependent world by expanding their geographic knowledge. This understanding will enable citizens of Iowa to become better informed, and to analyze and relate to the geographic dimension of many contemporary issues.
