A network of teachers and geographers working together to enhance the education of Michigan students
The Michigan Geographic Alliance (MGA) was founded in 1989 as part of the National Geographic Society's national network of geographic alliances by Dr. Michael Libbee from Central Michigan University, and Dr. Joseph Stoltman of Western Michigan University. The MGA has been headquartered in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at Central Michigan University since its inception. Supported by initial funding from the National Geographic Education Foundation, the State of Michigan and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the MGA has operated for almost 30 years with continued support from the Connie Binsfeld Endowment in Geographic Education.
