Bowdoin College, located in Brunswick, Maine, is honored to host the Structural Geology and Tectonics Forum (SGTF). SGTF is a biennial conference that has been convened since 2010 at college and university campuses across the United States. Postponed since Summer 2020, Bowdoin welcomes the return of this summer program. 

The primary aims of the SGTF are to (1) identify and discuss pedagogical advances and methods, specifically as they apply to some of the discipline specific challenges of teaching structural geology and tectonics (SG&T), (2) discuss new insights into important scientific questions in SG&T, (3) discuss the future directions of SG&T and consider the steps we need to take as a community towards these directions, (4) create opportunities to foster new collaborations through the cross-pollination of ideas and techniques, and (5) build a platform for early career professionals and students that supports and promotes their careers at a critical stage. 

This conference is funded in part by the National Science Foundation (NSF) EAR 2001169 and the Structural Geology and Tectonics Division of the Geological Society of America.
