involved in water-related research and scholarship?
scholarship at UW-Madison?
collaborators on the UW-Madison campus?
At Water@UW-Madison – A Wisconsin Idea Symposium, each of 50 UW-Madison faculty spanning biological, physical,social sciences, arts and humanities will briefly highlight their scholarly work. Talks will cover a remarkable diversity of topics—the global carbon cycle, agricultural runoff, groundwater protection, aquatic insects, water as a human right and more. A detailed agenda for the symposium can be found here. Refreshments will be served. The symposium will close with a panel discussion.
A key goal of the symposium is to improve communication among water scholars from all corners of the UW-Madison campus, and to build stronger connections with non-governmental organizations, elected officials, agency staff, consultants, and concerned citizens. Improving these linkages will benefit the teaching, research, and outreach mission of UW-Madison.
