One geography professor’s expertise is traveling beyond the state’s border and going national.
Rick Landenberger, Ph.D., assistant clinical professor of geography in the West Virginia University Department of Geology and Geography, was invited to sit on two prestigious science advisory committees tasked with providing guidance on national science and education programs: the Landsat Advisory Group and the Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment Program Office Science Advisory Committee.
“Professor Landenberger’s appointment further underscores our growing national prominence,” said Robert Jones, dean of the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences at WVU. “Our faculty are increasingly being tapped to participate in critical discussions about the future of science and science education in this country.”
