The Connecticut Geographic Alliance is an organization of educators, business people and other citizens dedicated to improving geographic education in Connecticut. Our members include teachers and administrators from most Connecticut towns, geography and education faculty from the state’s colleges and universities, and concerned citizens in business and government.

Our organization is part of the National Geographic Society’s Geographic Alliance Network. Alliance activities are supported by an endowment from the National Geographic Society Education Foundation. In addition, Central Connecticut State University provides a home base for the Alliance in its Geography Department.
