Dr. Godwin Djietror, Assistant Professor
Dr. Djietror graduated from the University of Ghana with a major in Geography and a Minor in Archeology; from the University of Toledo, Ohio, with an M.A. in Geography and Planning; and from McMaster University in Ontario, Canada, with a Ph.D. in Geography. After teaching a variety of physical geography, human geography, and land use planning courses at Central Michigan University from 2004 to 2009, he joined the Department of Geography at Marshall in August 2010. His teaching responsibilities at Marshall include Economic Geography, Urban Geography, regional geography courses on South and Middle America and Sub-Saharan Africa, planning courses, and Geographical Research. Dr. Djietror’s research focuses on the broad determinants of urban land use, particularly residential, commercial, and industrial uses. I am also interested in the geography of cardiovascular health outcomes, and the public health implications of urban planning and land use.
