Welcome to One World One Water Center for Urban Water Education and Stewardship
The One World One Water Center for Urban Water Education and Stewardship is a new program at Metropolitan State University of Denver, which was inspired by the infinity shaped tear drop sculpture created by artist Rik Sargent. The OWOW Center will help students become urban water stewards through coursework, co-curricular events, and applied learning activities. Internships will be available.
The Mission of the One World One Water Center for Urban Water Education and Stewardship at Metropolitan State College of Denver is to prepare an educated, empowered, solution-oriented Colorado citizenry to protect and preserve our precious water resources. Metro State fulfills the mission in three ways:
- Offer an interdisciplinary, hands-on Water Studies minor for students from diverse backgrounds and in any major;
- Provide co-curricular enrichment activities to the entire student population of the Auraria Campus, which includes Metro State, the University of Colorado – Denver, and the Community College of Denver;
- Enhance water stewardship on and beyond campus for the effective use of water resources.
The Water Studies Minor will provide students with skills necessary to become more knowledgeable of Colorado’s limited water resources, and how to preserve this most precious resource.
Water Studies Minor
The Water Studies Minor is an interdisciplinary field of study that provides a holistic, highly interactive program. The curriculum is designed to facilitate water studies education to students from a wide range of co-curricular programs. At least 9 credits of water studies courses in the minor must be completed in residency at MSU Denver. A grade of C or better must be earned in each course required for the minor. Students should note that programs differ in the minimum grade required. The Water Studies Minor will help create an educated, empowered and solution-oriented Colorado citizenry that protects and preserves our precious water resources.
