One World One Water Center Advisory Council

The Advisory Council was formed during the planning stages of the One World One Water Center to help guide the Center to a successful beginning and so forth.

The Council duties include:

  • Working to create relevance, vision, and connection within the water community
  • Serving as ambassadors for the OWOW Center in the community and around the state
  • Providing recommendations for current and future projects, programs, and services to encourage success of the water studies program
  • Actively participate in Advisory Council activities
  • Reviewing and assessing specific programs
  • Evaluating the organizations as a whole, and providing constructive recommendations for improvement
  • Gathering input from or serving as a liaison with key constituencies
  • Providing technical expertise
  • Providing an independent, unbiased sounding board for brainstorming, creating new ventures, or identifying institutional strengths and weaknesses as well as external opportunities
  • Assisting with future fundraising efforts as member time permits
