The Universities Council on Water Resources (UCOWR) organization consists of over 90 member universities and organizations throughout the world.

UCOWR's main objectives include to:

• Facilitate water-related education at all levels

• Promote meaningful research and technology transfer on contemporary and emerging water resources issues

• Compile and disseminate information on water problems and solutions

• Inform the public about water issues with the objective of promoting informed decisions at all levels of society

To achieve these goals, member institutions engage in education, research, public service, international activities, and information support for policy development related to water resources. UCOWR holds an annual conference that provides a forum to explore key and timely topics of interest to water resources researchers and educators. UCOWR also publishes the Journal of Contemporary Water Research and Education, presenting both scholarly work and current water resources news.
