The Colorado Water Center developed the CSU Water Sustainability Fellows Program to educate and elevate students from diverse backgrounds pursuing careers in the water sector. Each cohort of Water Sustainability Fellows partners with CSU faculty, staff, and community members to explore topics in water sustainability and environmental justice and equity. The Fellows work with community members to support projects that benefit the environment and improve livelihoods.
The Water Sustainability Fellows Program is designed to elevate previously underrepresented voices in conversations and decision-making around water. Therefore, we draw on the strengths and perspectives of students from underrepresented groups and students with community engagement skills.
