How is U of G keeping the world's water safe?
The challenges facing water protection, supply and remediation are complex and global in nature. As a community that relies almost exclusively on groundwater, the City of Guelph and U of G are directly impacted by safe, sustainable access to this important water source, and our researchers are playing an active role in shaping that future.
The University of Guelph has received a $10-million donation from Edward (Ted) Morwick to boost the global reputation, impact, and capabilities of its groundwater research through the G360 Institute for Groundwater Research, an interdisciplinary institute in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences at U of G. The Institute will be renamed to the Morwick G360 Groundwater Research Institute.
The gift – the largest-ever in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences history – comes from longtime U of G benefactor and friend, Ted Morwick, and is intended to support significant advancements in infrastructure, innovation, research and training. Morwick is an honorary U of G graduate, lawyer, cattle breeder, entrepreneur and published author. He has supported U of G students in arts, humanities and sciences through scholarships for more than 10 years.
The gift will transform groundwater research and training in the following ways:
