Welcome to the Lewis F. Rogers Institute for Environmental and Spatial Analysis (IESA) at the University of North Georgia and thank you for your interest in one of our several academic programs.
Our institute offers a robust intellectual environment that engenders an exciting range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary educational experiences for undergraduate students. Our mission is to engage students in the physical and social sciences, technology, and engineering while maintaining core goals that facilitate the enrichment of students with holistic knowledge and dynamic problem-solving skills.
Students at IESA have many opportunities for real-world projects mentored by our diverse and expert faculty that allow students to be readily employed by industry, non-profit and government agencies immediately upon graduation. In addition, many IESA students are accepted into prestigious graduate programs.
At IESA, we take great pride in being a vibrant and vital asset in shaping the future of our region. Our intent is to prepare students not only with a strong foundation of scientific and technical expertise but also with a well-grounded sense of social and ethical professionalism. It is my belief that qualities, knowledge, and skills gained at IESA are those that distinguish our graduates and ensure their success.
