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 150 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 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 will announce events, jobs and internships, research funding, and volunteer opportunities in a bi-weekly e-newsletter as well as on our Facebook page. We will also host conferences, workshops, and seminars to highlight innovative water research and engage the CSU community.

Our office in Johnson Hall will be a space for collaborative research and learning, housing our staff as well as visiting faculty and water fellows. Please stop by and visit for more information!
