The School for FreshWater Sciences belongs HERE.

For several years, the campus has discussed a goal of establishing UWM as the premier institution for freshwater science. As part of these discussions, the formation of a school to house graduate and undergraduate programs, with close links to programs and research in other schools and colleges, has been viewed as the appropriate next step.

The School of Freshwater Sciences Planning Team is asked to:

review prior documents and other materials relating to the School, and

prepare a draft proposal for further review and discussion by the UWM faculty and administration.

Specific areas the team will consider include academic programs and curricula; areas of research; faculty resources; relationship of the new School to UWM’s mission and the Water Institute; process/timing/criteria for converting senior scientists to faculty status; a plan for the school faculty governance in the early years; and potential for support from external stakeholders and funders.
