Milwaukee’s Global Water Center Expands

Did you know that Milwaukee is known as a UN Global Compact City? It is!  This is a recognition that stems from its innovation in the water sector. The UN Global Compact works with business to transform our world, aiming to create a sustainable and inclusive global economy that delivers lasting benefits to all people, communities and markets.  Milwaukee is a hub for more than 200 major water companies, and as Wisconsin’s largest city, it becomes a force to be reckoned with when it comes to water expertise. The Water Council is a nonprofit with more than 170 member companies that focus on preservation, research, technology, environmental protection and more.

The Global Water Center recently opened with the intention of bringing together engineering and equipment companies, universities, students and others involved in the multibillion water management market. In addition to businesses located on site, the center also houses the UW-Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Sciences, UW-Whitewater Institute for Water Business, and space is under construction for Marquette University. Interestingly, Global Water Center also collaborates with Milwaukee Area Technical College on a water technician certificate, which requires 17 to 19 credits in courses that also apply toward the school’s environmental health and water quality technology associate degrees. The program was developed through a $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.
