Join our team in building a Water Community!
We are seeking water-related faculty, staff, and grad students to serve on the Water@UW-Madison Executive Committee. Vacant positions are elected by the Water@UW-Madison community on an annual basis and we are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are interested in helping to grow our water community on campus. This year we plan to elect:
• 5 At-large faculty/staff positions (3 year terms)
• 2 Graduate student/Postdoctoral representatives (1 year terms)
If you would like to enter your name for consideration, please complete this survey. We are asking for your name, title and department affiliation, the position you would like to be considered for, and a short (1 paragraph) statement about your background and reasons for running which we can include on the ballot. Candidates will be accepted until Friday, April 24th.
