Water Expertise at U of I Gathered into New Information Hub

The Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) announced the launch of a new addition to their website on July 30 to coalesce the dozens of water scholars on the University of Illinois' Urbana-Champaign campus.

Illinois is home to a rich, interactive community of world-renowned scholars, who are willing to work across disciplines to solve the issues the world faces with its water supply -- and "Water at Illinois" is the new access point for water-related research conducted across campus.

The new access point showcases Illinois scholars' research, education, and engagement programs integrated across four main categories of water-related "needs":

  1. Adaptation to a changing climate and extreme weather events;
  2. Sustainable water, food, and energy resources;
  3. Safe drinking water and public health; and
  4. Resilient watersheds and ecosystems.

In addition, Water at Illinois has individual pages for each scholar, plus a page describing who the scholars are and the Water Council that steers them.

And the access point serves as a "front porch" to various water centers at Illinois -- including the state surveys and grant-based centers -- as well as to laboratories, facilities and field stations that specialize in water research.

Finally, Water at Illinois will be a repository for opportunities in the water field, including grants, educational areas, and jobs.
