GIS Club Advisors

To keep us young turks on the straight and narrow, we look to our advisors, Donna Genzmer, GISP, (How could we go wrong when her Twitter handle is "@MapGoddess"?) and Professor William Huxhold, GISP.

Donna is the director of the Cartography and Geographic Information Science Center at UWM when she's not dealing with the club. Professor Huxhold is chair of the UWM Urban Planning Department. In 2011 he was inducted into the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association Hall of Fame.
