Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
The One World One Water (OWOW) Center is a collaboration between Metropolitan State University of Denver and Denver Botanic Gardens. The partnership presents an opportunity to build on and expand joint initiatives on water issues, leveraging the strength of each institution to more broadly impact water issues in communities near and far.
At the core of the OWOW Center is an interdisciplinary Water Studies minor and certificate program. Recognizing that the growing complexity of water issues calls for a diverse set of skills and knowledge, the OWOW Center develops an engaged student body in disciplines as varied as journalism, biology and art.
Water Studies students as well as faculty collaborate with Denver Botanic Gardens’ staff through an internship program, joint research projects, and a range of water stewardship initiatives.
The OWOW Center works with U.S. and international governments, NGOs and other academic institutions to advance cooperative water management. Some examples:
“SHED” Watershed Summit
In partnership with several Colorado organizations, the OWOW Center hosts this annual event each June, convening 200 water professionals to discuss conservation, green infrastructure, sustainable agriculture and corporate social responsibility as they impact state, national and international watersheds.
