Year of Water

The Year of Water celebrates the Finger Lakes Institute at 15 years, recognizing its interdisciplinary work on water and community. Throughout the year, through a significant series of interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary events, HWS will recognize one of HWS’ assets – the lake and the watershed, and all the academic work that is built on and contributes to the survival of those assets. The effort is reflective of the liberal arts mission of the Colleges and reinforces the strong, sustaining ties between HWS and the communities surrounding the lake.
