Symposium considers water quality, climate change, environmental education

The third annual Water Symposium was held on Friday, Sept. 30, in Townsend Hall on the University of Delaware College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) campus. The annual event provides an opportunity for faculty and students associated with the interdisciplinary water science and policy (WSP) graduate program, which is spread across multiple departments and colleges at UD, to come together to present their research and share ideas.

The symposium included a plenary talk by Diane McKnight, an internationally-renowned water expert, short five-minute talks by WSP graduate students, and an open forum on how to further enhance water and environmental education at the University.
