MISSION: The CSU Water Center catalyzes excellence in water research, teaching, and engagement by fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and creative scholarship.

The CSU Water Center brings together a network of over 200 faculty members from various departments across the CSU campus and seeks to engage students and faculty in interdisciplinary research and to promote current water-related research taking place at CSU.

A main focus area of the Water Center is to inform interested faculty, students, and community members of water related opportunities around the CSU campus and throughout the state of Colorado. We announce events, jobs and internships, research funding, and volunteer opportunities in our bi-weekly e-newsletter, The Current, as well as on our Facebook page. We also host and sponsor conferences, workshops, and seminars to highlight innovative water research and engage the CSU community.

Our office in Johnson Hall offers a space for collaborative research and learning, houses our staff, visiting faculty and water fellows. Please contact us or stop by and visit for more information!
