Mark MaGrann, a long-time supporter of the Department of Geography, passed away on April 3, 2019. Mark was an alumni of Rutgers University, and while there, developed a particular interest and affinity in geography. This led years later to a renewed friendship with the Rutgers Geography program. His presence will be missed, but the endowment he created for the Department of Geography will continue to support the kind of geographic research he was passionate about. Full obituary.

The MaGrann Conference was inaugurated in 2003 as an annual or biennial forum of global environment and development scholars--organized by The Department of Geography at Rutgers around a unique theme.  Accepted presenters represent various disciplines in the sciences and social sciences and are drawn from Rutgers University as well as from institutions from around the world. The conference programs include presentations, workshops and meetings throughout one or several days.
