Congratulations to Ani Thompson Smith, winner of the 2014 IGS Distinguished Geographer Award!

What We Do

The Illinois Geographical Society seeks to promote scientific research in geography, encourage better teaching of geography at all levels, diffuse geographic knowledge, and to unify geographic interest in the state. The Society's peer-reviewed journal, Illinois Geographer, is published twice-yearly.

We are partners with both the Illinois Geographic Alliance and the Geographic Society of Chicago.
