Learn About The Freshwater Collaborative Of Wisconsin


Climate change, pollution and over demand are just a few of the challenges that are forcing us to rethink how we use and conserve water. Both globally and in the water-rich Great Lakes region, there's also a need to train the next generation of scientists and technicians to work in the water industry.

On this edition of UWM Today, we talk about an exciting new initiative that could make Wisconsin a global leader in water science and technology. It’s called the Freshwater Collaborative of Wisconsin. Here to talk about it is the executive director of the collaborative Marissa Jablonski and Val Klump, dean of the UWM School of Freshwater Sciences, the only school of freshwater in the United States.
