CWS Lunch Discussions & Water Wednesdays


Lunch Discussions
In 2014, CWS will be hosting several lunch discussions to discuss big water science at MSU and creation of a graduate water curriculum. We will post information about the meetings as well as updates on our ongoing discussion here. If you are interested in participating, please contact Erin Dreelin at

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. We hold several Water Wednesdays each year, dates and times will be posted below as they are scheduled.
