Advisory Board


The Iowa Water Center's advisory board works closely with the center director and coordinator to define the vision and goals for the Center and to guide its programs. In addition to individuals with science and policy expertise, board membership includes representatives from Iowa organizations having water interests and responsibilities. These include Iowa’s Regents universities, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, and selected federal agencies.
