Welcome to the Water Scholars Community
Established in 2019, the Water Scholars Water Resources Learning Community is a program for faculty, staff, and graduate students across Iowa to connect and participate in professional development programming tailored specifically for water resources researchers.
Due to COVID-19 impacts on in-person events, the Water Scholars Community will be active later in 2022.
The program includes the following activities throughout the year:
- Professional development programming with guest presenters and leading experts in Iowa water policy, science communication, and team building
- Networking opportunities for interdisciplinary faculty, staff, and graduate students
- A Book Club that serves as a venue to discuss emergent water related topics in popular press and public discourse
- Participants in the program are listed in our Water Scholars Directory for the public to access to serve as a resource for potential project collaborators among water scientists, interview/subject matter expert requests for media, and connections to researchers for community members and educators.
Learning Community Topics:
Science communication to the public and policymakers
Building competitive, diverse research teams
Arts and the environment
