At Northwestern, a coordinated effort between the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, the McCormick School of Engineering, and the Northwestern Center for Water Research is dedicated to the examination of water in Israel. This interdisciplinary collaboration includes an annual undergraduate seminar on water in Israel and the Middle East, an annual international symposium, and a 12-day Global Engineering Trek to Israel, in which students study the realities and impact of water issues first-hand.
