Alex Mayer Cited by Center for Water and Society

As part of World Water Day, Professor Alex Mayer (CEE) was recognized for his initiative and dedication in cofounding and leading the Michigan Tech Center for Water and Society (MT-CWS).

Mayer, who received a certificate and a stained glass scene of Lake Superior, cofounded the CWS in 2005. The organization’s mission is to enhance the ability and visibility of Michigan Tech to solve water-related problems of local, regional, and international interest.

Mayer stepped down in August of 2011. “I had a great time for six years,” he said. “I have worked with so many remarkable people who have contributed to the success of the center, but I felt it was time for some new blood and to bring in people with exciting and new ideas.”

Professor Noel Urban (CEE) succeeds Mayer.
