Spring 2014 theme:
Addressing Global Water Resource Challenges with Local Expertise
Mondays at 4:00PM
The purpose of the 2012 Interdisciplinary Water Resources Seminar (GRAD592) is to expose students to the broad gamut of opportunities and trends within the field of water resources through guest lectures by prominent Colorado water practitioners. The 13 week seminar series will feature the work of CSU graduate students and their major professors on tackling the big problems in water resources: scarcity, quality, energy, food, climate, population and sustainability.
Students interested in taking the one-credit seminar should sign up for GRAD592, Water Resources Seminar, CRN 67067. Grading will be on a pass/fail basis with student participation and written assignments comprising the grade requirement. The seminar will be held at 4:00 PM Monday afternoons in NATRS 109. (Students who have enrolled in GRAD592 in the past, can also enroll for this offering). For further information, contact Reagan Waskom at firstname.lastname@example.org
All interested faculty, students and off-campus water professionals are encouraged to attend and participate.
