I’m ecstatic to announce that I’ve just accepted a Faculty Associate position in the Department of Geography at the University of Wisconsin (the Big 10 version) in Madison.
My position is not a typical academic one, which very well may bode well for me, because I’ve been called “atypical.” I am now the Director of a brand new Professional Online Master’s of GIS in Development and Programming. The program begins in Fall 2016 and is open to anyone in the world with a Bachelors and an interest in GIS Development. No visa required. Just good credentials and an intense will to succeed!
I will let people know more in short order, but right now I’m just thrilled to let the world know that I am moving to Madison and excited to be working at an historic epicenter of US GIS and Cartographic thought! Moreover, this new Masters is an integral part of the Geography Department, which means a lot to me, as I’ve always said:
I remain first and foremost a geographer.
