Welcome to the Geographic Society of Chicago

The Geographic Society of Chicago (GSC) is involved with anything and everything related to the study of geography. We have members and contributors from all walks of life, yet we all share an unrelenting love and devotion to geographical pursuits. The Society has been in existence for over 100 years, and was first established by geography professors in an effort to promote and celebrate the study of geography.

Today the GSC is comprised of dedicated members and supporters who are professional geographers, teachers, business and government leaders, and interested members of the public. Our years of experience in education, business, and community service have allowed us to successfully carry out the mission of the GSCʼs original founders.

The MISSION of the Geographic Society of Chicago is to:

  • advance the art and science of geography;
  • encourage the study of geography in the schools;
  • recognize outstanding achievements in the field;
  • provide leadership on geographic issues;
  • and promote public understanding and appreciation of Earth's people and places.
