About Us

The Global Water Institute at Ohio State was formed in recognition of the critical nature of water issues facing Ohio, other parts of the USA, and the world. As population climbs, urban centers continue to expand, and the impacts of climate change threaten human health and livelihoods, the need for availability of and access to abundant, fit-for-use water has never been more urgent.

Our Mission

The Global Water Institute connects the creative abilities of our university community and external partners to provide practical and innovative solutions to global water challenges.

Our Vision

Clean, available, accessible, and sustainable water for all in an ever-changing world.
