Gamma Theta Upsilon (GTU)

GTU - The International Geographical Honor Society

Gamma Theta Upsilon (GTU) is an international honor society in geography. Gamma Theta Upsilon was founded in 1928 and became a national organization in 1931. Members of GTU have met academic requirements and share a background and interest in geography. GTU chapter activities support geography knowledge and awareness.

GTU's Goals are:

  1. To further professional interest in Geography by affording a common organization for those interested in the field.
  2. To strengthen student and professional training through academic experiences in addition to those of the classroom and laboratory.
  3. To advance the status of Geography as a cultural and practical discipline for study and investigation.
  4. To encourage student research of high quality, and to promote an outlet for publication.
  5. To create and administer funds for furthering graduate study and/or research in the field of Geography.

The Zeta Eta Chapter of GTU, established at Salisbury University in 1980, invites qualified students to join the organization in the Spring of each year.  To be invited, students must meet the following qualifications:

  • Completed 18 hours of Geography/Geoscience coursework
  • A minimum GPA of 3.3 in Geography/Geoscience coursework
  • A minimum GPA of 3.3 in all SU coursework

The faculty of Salisbury University congratulate these outstanding Geography students and wish them, and all past inductees, great success in their future endeavors.
