Natural Resources donated $600,000 to the Department of Geosciences in the
School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics to send more UT Dallas students to
outdoor laboratories. Student opportunities include exploring the geographic
wonders of New Mexico and Colorado, and cross-country trips to examine the
tectonic processes that formed the western United States. Pioneer’s
contribution will elevate several aspects of the geosciences program, which
immerses students in the study of the composition, structure and history of the
Earth and the universe.
