Welcome to the
Department of Geography

This image of the earth, centred on the University of Winnipeg, displays the real time position of the circle of illumination, the boundary between day and night.

It is with deep regret that the Department of Geography announces the passing of Kimberly Monson. For 35 years Kim set up and maintained the Physical Geography lab complex ensuring the best environment for students and faculty for their lab exercises and research. Kim's enthusiasm with her work and her devotion helping students will be missed.

To commemorate Kim's devotion to the Geography Department and to mentoring young women, and to recognize the crucial help she got early in her student days, a bursary fund is being set up in her name at the University of Winnipeg to assist young women studying physical geography. In lieu of flowers, if they wish, people may contribute to the Kim Monson Bursary Fund through the University of Winnipeg Foundation.
