Inland Seas Education Association will be welcoming students from the Universidad de la Salle in Colombia in 2022. The interns are part of Northwestern Michigan College’s project titled “Bridging Waterways Across the Americas.” According to the NMC press release,
Bridging Waterways will engage NMC Freshwater Studies students and faculty and their counterparts in the biology and environmental engineering undergraduate programs at La Salle in comparative environmental studies during the 2021-2022 academic year. Specifically, students will focus on freshwater resources in the Cuenca del Rio Teusacá (Bogotá, Colombia) and the Great Lakes region, seeking to identify local solutions to the global problem of adequate water resources.
We are honored to be part of this project and excited to share the Great Lakes with these international students.
