AGU and AAS are the fortunate recipients of a major grant from The Kavli Foundation that brings together our communities to advance the science of exoplanets. I’m proud to be a part of these institutions, particularly at critical junctures in with exoplanetary research, since this is exactly the kind of action that needs to be taken at the institutional level to help move the science forward. Exoplanet science ranks among those discoveries that inspire humankind to look beyond and think above …

When AGU was founded, nearly 100 years ago, the world was a very different place. However, despite the century’s worth of change between 1919 and today, the ability of Earth and space science to improve our society—and the desire of scientists to provide those benefits to humanity—has remained the same. That’s why, as we approach the celebration of our Centennial, we are using the energy of the past to start the …

Since AGU adopted its revised ethics policy in September 2017, and even prior to that time, we have seen a movement toward creating a safe, inclusive environment for science. As AGU President Eric Davidson, President-elect Robin Bell and Past President Margaret Leinen wrote, “We’ve seen and heard of too many instances, stories, and studies that show harassment in the sciences is happening and that the problem is significant.” We heard …

From ocean sciences and geology to seismology and planetary sciences, when our headquarters building was designed in the early 90s every effort was made to have the structure be representative of the broad array of sciences comprised by AGU’s membership. More than 20 years later, with that building’s critical infrastructure reaching the end of its useful life and a renovation becoming necessary, the Board realized that they had a choice …
