The One World One Water Center is a collaboration between Metropolitan State University of Denver and Denver Botanic Gardens. The partnership presents an opportunity to build on and expand joint initiatives on water issues. This will allow us to:

1) expand the reach and breadth of educational programs on water and environmental issues;
2) attract funding for joint research in these areas;
3) raise awareness of water and the environment through collaborative water stewardship.

This is a new, exciting, and creative step forward for the OWOW Center and we welcome you to join us. 

The OWOW Center offers three water studies academic offerings:

1) Water Studies Minor
2) Water Studies Certificate
3) Water Studies Online Certificate

Learn more about all three programs: Water Studies Academic Programs

"A good steward learns about our most precious natural resource - water, and reaches out to put that knowledge into action. Colorado's future will be shaped by our students, and their stewardship will determine the fate of our rivers, lakes and groundwater." - Tom Cech, Director of the OWOW Center
