Water Resources Research Center, University of Minnesota
Newsletter or Bulletin
The troubled state of financing of the Water Resources Research Center (WRRC) precipitated a review of the WRRC, its role, its relation to other water resources units or programs in the University, its administrative structure and its financing. An ad hoc committee appointed by
the University Vice President reported back with its reommendations on
the role of WRRC, in research, in coordination, and in communication and
The ad hoc report was supportive of the need for strengthening and
financially supporting an expanded role for WRRC.
The University administration sensing a need for developing a coordinate
mission for Natural Resources on its various colleges and campuses
took action to set up a structure for that purpose. This consisted of
appointing an Executive Council, a technical advisory committee and four
resources sub-committees of which the Water Resources Subcommittee was one.
The Water Resources Subcommittee if activated will probably set
the goals and define the future role and authority of not only WRRC but
also of other water Centers in the University.
