Water Resources Institute

The Water Resources Initiative (WRI) at Skidmore College brings together students, faculty and community partners in the investigation of our local water issues. Through courses and research, WRI helps us better understand the multiple perspectives that influence how we interact with our water resources on both a local and global scale.  The data collected through WRI research collaborations will make valuable contributions to the academic literature on water issues and to our local community discussions.
