The University of Redlands is strongly connected with geospatial industry leader, Esri, who has its international headquarters a few miles from campus. Because Esri equips the university with its powerful analysis tools, spatial studies students develop their skills using the same GIS software employed by leading organizations worldwide. Many University of Redlands students start their careers at Esri through internships that lead to full-time positions. The university also places students at companies, governmental agencies, and nongovernmental organizations that use Esri's tools: City of Redlands, San Bernardino County, Riverside County, U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Geological Survey, Wildlands Conservancy, and Crafton Hills Open Space Conservancy. Applied research projects and learning opportunities involving these partners help students build spatial workplace competencies that are useful in pursuing internships, employment, and graduate studies.
