New Faculty Research Program

The WRI is beginning a new research program for faculty. This program encourages involvement from CSUSB faculty across all disciplines in research topics related to water issues, and this year we have a fund of $20,000 for faculty research projects. This fund is expected to increase in the upcoming years, so a greater number of faculty opportunities will be offered. Some project ideas that we would like faculty to become involved with include:

  • history of water use in the Coachella Valley
  • administrative structure of disadvantaged communities (DACs)
  • potential consolidation of DACs
  • cataloging archives
  • studying the economic impact of water to the state
