Manson Named To Prestigious Water Policy Institute Panel

June 13, 2008

Tags: Alumni, 2008

Craig Manson, ’81, has been named to the advisory panel of The Water Policy Institute, a newly formed organization in Washington, D.C. that will address current challenges affecting both global and local water issues including supply, quality, use, wildlife and agricultural concerns, and climate change.

The non-partisan organization’s mission is to collaboratively develop innovative, sustainable solutions for water supply and quality issues, and to provide leadership on legal, regulatory and policy issues involving water locally, nationally, and internationally.

Former EPA Administrator and New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman chairs the institute. Manson is one of a small, select group of leading water experts, among them scientists, academics, former government officials, and NGO professionals, who comprise the advisory panel.

Manson, former Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and Parks in the U.S. Department of the Interior, is a Distinguished Visiting Professor and Lecturer in Law at McGeorge.
