New Partners Join CIGLR to Keep the Great Lakes Great

Four new partners have successfully competed to join the Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research’s Regional Consortium, further expanding CIGLR’s capacity and expertise to understand, predict, and ultimately solve the critical issues facing the Great Lakes and surrounding communities. With the addition of these new partner organizations, the CIGLR Regional Consortium consists of twelve universities, four NGOs, and three businesses who partner with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in research and development activities that support NOAA’s mission in the Great Lakes.

The four new partners are Cleveland Water Alliance, Lake Superior State University, Michigan Technological University, and Wayne State University. These institutions were selected for membership because each brings a critical new element to the Regional Consortium.

“I am excited about the new era of sustainable resource management that is being built right now – an era that is based on partnerships among great organizations who work together for the good of all who call the Great Lakes their home,” said CIGLR Director, Dr. Brad Cardinale.
