ILLINOIS WATER SCHOLARS BY AREA OF EXCELLENCE

As a premier research institution, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign features brilliant minds across its campus — from engineering, agriculture, physical sciences, social sciences, arts, and more — to dedicated researchers working in water fields at the various scientific surveys and the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC, a Division of the Prairie Research Institute).

In short, Illinois is an ideal partner for working on the grand water challenges, and we have scholars already in place to get the job done.
