Water@UWMadison: A Wisconsin Idea Symposium – May 11

Monday, May 11, 2015,  8:15 am – 12:45 pm

Gordon Commons, UW-Madison


  • Did you know that UW-Madison has over 100 faculty and scientists involved in water-related research and scholarship?
  • Do you want to learn more about the diversity of water-related scholarship at UW-Madison?
  • Are you interested in meeting colleagues and potential collaborators on the UW-Madison campus?

At Water@UWMadison – A Wisconsin Idea Symposium, each of 50 UW-Madison faculty spanning biological, physical, social sciences, and arts and humanities will briefly highlight their scholarly work. Talks will cover a remarkable diversity of topics – the global carbon cycle, agricultural runoff, groundwater protection, aquatic insects, water as a human right, and much, much more. A detailed agenda for the symposium can be found here. Refreshments will be served. The symposium will close with a panel discussion.

A key goal of the symposium is to improve communication among water scholars from all corners of the UW-Madison campus, as well as with non-governmental organizations, elected officials, agencies, consultants, and concerned citizens. Improving these linkages would benefit the teaching, research, and outreach mission of UW-Madison.
