The MSU Water Science Network is an effort to link the many water-related research and programs across campus. The Network’s goal is to build rapid synergies and working relationships among faculty, facilitate joint research grants, and promote MSU as a center of excellence in water. The Water Science Network offers networking opportunities and innovative funding programs to build these relationships and promote interdisciplinary collaboration across campus. The Water Science Network is supported by funds from the Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies and is administered by the Environmental Science and Policy Program under the guidance of a water faculty advisory committee.
