The Nebraska Water Center (NWC), in partnership with the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s School of Natural Resources, will begin its annual Spring Water Seminar Series this February. The series will focus on race, justice and the environment and features Nebraska, national and international speakers. Each seminar will weave water issues into the larger picture. While the series has long been open to the public, due to COVID-19 it will be delivered virtually via Zoom at its regularly scheduled time of 3:30 p.m. every other Wednesday.

In addition, the series—with writing assignments and in-class, student-led discussions on alternate weeks—doubles as a one-credit hour undergraduate/graduate course listed under NRES/AGRO/GEOG/GEOL 484/884 and WATS 484. Students interested in registering should be junior level or above.

The 2021 seminars feature one of the most diverse lineups in series history. Collectively, the speakers represent engineering, water chemistry, environmental studies, legal, policymaking, tribal and student backgrounds. They are also geographically diverse, with lecturers hailing from Oklahoma, North Dakota, Arizona, Puerto Rico and Kazakhstan. Nebraska speakers include legal scholars and several tribal representatives, many of whom will participate in a Tribal Water Summit on April 14.

See attached flyer for this year lecturers.
