A COMMITMENT TO LOCAL AND GLOBAL WATER STEWARDSHIP

As a state with over 15,000 freshwater lakes, we know water. Our access to ample fresh water has put us at the forefront of commercial activity in agriculture, power generation and more while giving way to improving the lives of many across the globe. When it comes to moving, metering, treating and using water in a sustainable manner, Wisconsin possesses world-leading knowledge based on a long history of innovation.

Today we’re home to a broad range of water-focused academic programs, including the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Freshwater Sciences, the nation’s only graduate-level institution dedicated solely to freshwater. Milwaukee is also home to the Global Water Center and designated as one of two United Nations Global Compact Innovating Cities in the nation, making it”The Capital of Water” according to Forbes.

Thirty major public and private educational institutions throughout Wisconsin offer more than 50 different water-focused degree programs. Where better to launch or advance a career aimed at addressing the world’s water challenges?
