The Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) has announced a new website to coalesce the dozens of water scholars on the University of Illinois’ Urbana-Champaign campus.
The website showcases Illinois research, education, and engagement programs integrated across four main categories of water-related “needs”:
- Adaptation to a changing climate and extreme weather events;
- Sustainable water, food, and energy resources;
- Safe drinking water and public health; and
- Resilient watersheds and ecosystems.
In addition, Water at Illinois has individual pages for scholars, plus a page describing who the scholars are and the Water Council that steers them. It is a “front porch” to various water centers at Illinois — including the state surveys, academic units, and grant-based centers — as well as to laboratories, facilities and field stations that specialize in water research.
