Katherine Schoenenberger

Interim Coordinator for Undergraduate Sustainability Curriculum and Experiential Education

  • Full-Time Faculty


Katie returned to UD in 2001 after having graduated in 1999 with a BS in Geology and receiving a MS from the University of Cincinnati in Glacial Geology. She has taught SCI 210 labs and worked with Geographic Information systems in the department and around campus. She is currently the interim Coordinator for Undergraduate Sustainability and Experiential Education in the Hanley Sustainability Institute.

Faculty Perspective

In addition to teaching and GIS projects, I have continued work on my lichenometry and glacial geomorphology studies that began with my masters thesis on the Little Ice Age Chronology of Classen and Godley Glaciers, Mt. Cook National Park, New Zealand. When the academic year comes to a close I can usually be found far from Dayton, OH in such places as Alaska, the Canadian Rockies, the Cascades, England, and Iceland.
