Water Resources Institute

Mon, 04/29/2024 - 17:24
The Board of Trustees approved the creation of a new UVM Water Resources Institute that will be housed in the Office of the Vice President for Research and led by Dr. Beverley Wemple from the department of Geography and Geosciences. There have long been informal conversations about the possibility of a water institute on our campus, but the discussion began in earnest in Fall 2022 and quickly garnered widespread support. The institute will harness our strength in water research, education, and outreach to advance a sustainable water future. Our water expertise includes more than a decade of National Science Foundation-funded capacity-building grants to Vermont EPSCoR on water-related topics; multiple college-level programs that support water or water-related research; partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Cooperative Institute for Research to Operations in Hydrology; and more than 100 faculty across 6 colleges and schools and 22 departments engaged in water research.
