Data Center Description
The mission of the University of Memphis Ground Water Institute (GWI) is to conduct research, perform service, and develop education programs to ensure that the water consumed by the general public in 2050 is as plentiful and high quality as it is today.
The GWI is an organization of faculty, graduate and undergraduate students and non-academicians dedicated to becoming a locus of expertise in ground water management in Memphis at The University of Memphis. As an organization within the Herff College of Engineering, the GWI is a college-wide function whose director reports directly to the Dean of the College. The locus of expertise includes faculty, computer facilities and a GIS-managed database.
All of the non-academic functions of the Institute are reviewed by a non-university group, the Planning and Advisory Committee, which is composed of representatives of the funding entities. In addition, a Technical Advisory Committee has been formed which provides technical oversight and advice to the GWI.
