Networking Event for MSU Water Faculty and Post-doctoral Researchers

Please join us at a networking event for MSU faculty and post-docs to meet the new water hires and connect with others interested in water.


We're asking that faculty create 1 slide for the event using the below template. The slides will be projected during the event and we hope they will stimulate conversation. The idea here is that your slide will quickly tell people about what you do, something they might not know about you related to your research interests, and your interests for collaborations (with people or on topics). Even if you can't make the event, you can still send in a slide so others at MSU can learn more about your interests related to water. Please complete your slide and email it to Erin Dreelin ( by Oct 22.

Water Wednesdays

Our goal for Water Wednesday is to stimulate conversation and collaboration on campus.  We hope these discussions will be a place for MSU faculty and students interested in water to get together and talk about ideas, opportunities, recent developments and whatever else may come up.
