activities and accomplishments.
The Water Center operated from 2014-2020 alongside a
five-year USAID-funded project, the
U.S.-Pakistan Center for Advanced Studies in Water.
University of Utah water researchers continue
their dedication to improving lives through
interdisciplinary research promoting the
security of the Earth’s water systems.
The U Water Center builds the educational and professional capacity of partner institutions in order to support global water security. Through these unique partnerships we develop curriculum enhancements, foster one-to-one mentorships and research partnerships, and develop trainings for students, faculty and professionals.
From Policy and law, urban hydrology and climate forecasting to isotope-tracing, humanities and public health - University of Utah faculty are looking at water issues across disciplines.
Water specialists need sophisticated support as their communities face a changing climate, aging infrastructure, and other resource disruptions. The U Water Center delivers tailored training programs to support the careers of global water professionals and help them to steward this critical resource in a challenging, ever-changing field.
