Center for Water and Society (CWS)
The mission of the Center for Water and Society (CWS) is to support research, education, and outreach in all disciplines at Michigan Technological University related to water issues. The goal is to establish Michigan Tech as a state, regional, national, and international leader in these disciplines and, in particular, in interdisciplinary approaches to solving water-related problems. The objectives of the CWS are:
- to serve as a focal point for instructional and research activities in water-related fields and water-related outreach activities across the Michigan Tech campus;
- to provide an organizational structure that supports continuing growth in water-related fields and outreach activities and encourage interdisciplinary projects;
- to support interdisciplinary graduate and undergraduate education and research in water-related fields; and
- to pursue external funding opportunities to support these objectives and to facilitate CWS-participating faculty to obtain external support.
