Symposium Series

Grand Challenges in Water Sustainability

This series of three symposia is focused on water sustainability issues in the 21st century. The goal of the series is to bring together students, faculty, and professionals in the mid-Atlantic region to share and discuss current knowledge and research in the field and expose students to potential career paths within water sciences.
