The Geographic Society of Chicago (GSC) is involved with anything and everything related to the study of geography. Our members and contributors come from all walks of life, all sharing one thing: an unrelenting love and devotion to geographical pursuits.

Established in 1898 by a group of geography professors in order to promote and celebrate the study of geography, the GSC today is comprised of professional geographers, teachers, business and government leaders, as well as interested members of the public.

Together, our board and membership provide education opportunities for students and educators, assist in building geographic materials collections in educational and cultural institutions, promote new and emerging technologies in problem solving, and much more.

Did you know that The Geographic Society of Chicago was founded by a woman 125 years ago?

In 1898, Zonia Baber and fellow geographers gathered to unite a community that celebrates 125 years of impact this year.

The legacy of women in geography continues to this day! This year GSC is hosting the Women in Geography webinar series, featuring presentations from inspiring and celebrated women in the field of geography.

If you can’t make it to the webinar, be sure to check out the recordings found on the GSC YouTube Channel.
