Texas Alliance for Geographic Education (TAGE)


“To support and advocate for geographic education in the Texas educational community.”

The Texas Alliance for Geographic Education (TAGE) is part of the Grosvenor Center for Geographic Education in the Department of Geography at Texas State University. The Texas Alliance is a university-based, statewide resource that works with a network of geographers, scholars, and educators in support of K-12 geography education. We provide quality, free and low-cost resources that enhance understanding of geography content, concepts, and skills to Texas’ K-12 educational community. The Texas Alliance is committed to providing Texas teachers with the knowledge and skills necessary to engage students in exploring and understanding their world.


TAGE was established in 1986 with the support of the National Geographic Society (NGS). The headquarters are at Texas State University. On December 31, 2018, NGS pulled support from the Alliance Network, but Texas State University continues to support the mission and vision of the Texas Alliance.
