4. WATER INSTITUTE PROGRAM ACTIVITIES


4.1 The Smallwood- UF Water Institute Distinguished Scholar Seminar Series
A gift from the Frances C. and William P. Smallwood Foundation will fund a new Distinguished
Scholar Seminar Series beginning in Fall 2007. This seminar series invites high profile scholars
to UF on a monthly basis to: (1) conduct a general Water Institute seminar that will be of interest
to a broad audience, (2) meet with the Water Institute Faculty Advisory Committee to discuss
strategic planning and partnering opportunities, and (3) meet with interested Water Institute
faculty to discuss specific research/education issues. Each scholar will also be invited to serve
on the External Council of Advisors for the Water Institute for a 12 month period following their
visit.

An impressive line-up of interdisciplinary speakers has been arranged for the inaugural 2007
Seminar Series; seven of whom hold Eminent Scholar Chairs at their institutions and five of
whom are National Academy members (see Appendix 5)

4.2 Inaugural Progress Energy UF Water Institute Symposium
The inaugural Water Institute Symposium will be held at the Gainesville Hilton University of
Florida Conference Center on 27,28 February 2008. The theme of the first conference will be
Sustainable Water Resources: Florida Challenges, Global Solutions. The purpose of the
conference is to: (1) bring academics, policy makers, water managers, industry and agriculture
representatives, consultants, lawyers, legislators, and citizens together to define current status of
water resources sustainability in Florida; (2) showcase new technologies/policies/incentives
available that show promise to promote sustainability; and (3) identify pressing issues,
knowledge gaps, research/educational programs needed to ensure sustainability.

This conference will also feature a graduate student poster session to highlight relevant, on-going
research at UF. A research award for the best poster will be presented (made possible by a gift
from the Smallwood Foundation). This award will cover the costs for the student to attend a
national research conference to present their work. A preliminary flyer for the conference and
the composition of the planning committee are included in Appendix 6.

4.3 2007 Water Institute Program Initiation Fund Awards (Total Awards = $195K)
The first call for proposals for the Water Institute Program Initiation fund was released on 8 Dec
2006. Proposals were received through January and reviews were completed by the Faculty

4.4 Externally Funded Water Institute Projects
In December 2006 the FAC established a Project Classification policy for the Water Institute.
There are three categories of projects that apportion credit and IDC in an equitable way
depending on how involved the Water Institute was in the project development (See Appendix 7
for details)

4.4.1 Category 1 Water Institute Affiliated (Total Funding $12,911,192 )
Approximately $13,000,000 in 155 active externally funded projects have been designated by 43
Water Institute faculty as Category 1 Water Institute Affiliated projects for 2006-07. The
Category 1 designation indicates that the Project Team would like the project to be recognized as
a Water Institute Project, but no Water Institute services are requested and no budget flows
through the Water Institute. These projects are cataloged in a searchable database that will soon
be web accessible and integrated with the web accessible faculty expertise database. A list of
these projects is included in Appendix 8. Repeated follow-up with Water Institute faculty is
expected to increase the number of projects in this database.

4.4.2 Category 2 Water Institute Assisted (Total Funding $1,291,000)
The following projects funded during 2006-07 are designated as Category 2 Water Institute
Assisted projects, indicating either an agreement to provide Water Institute services (e.g.
technical, data management, project management) for the project, or acknowledgement that









Water Institute assistance was instrumental in proposal development (e.g. referral to a sponsoring
agency, initial organization of the project team, provision of matching funds).

Appendix 4: University of Florida Water Institute Draft Strategic Plan
Draft 4/27/07

1. Introduction

With the world's largest ecosystem restoration project, one of the world's most productive
aquifers, the largest concentration of first magnitude springs in the country, a burgeoning human
population, and vulnerability to both climatological and anthropogenic changes in the water
cycle, Florida provides a unique living laboratory to develop new knowledge and test solutions
to global water problems. In recognition of the importance of these water issues, and the need to
address them in a new interdisciplinary manner (NAS, 2001), the University of Florida (UF)
established a campus-wide interdisciplinary Water Institute in May 2006. The UF Water
Institute is committed to developing new scientific understanding; creative engineering, policy
and legal solutions; and innovative educational programs for solving state, national, and global
water resource problems.

2. Mission

The Water Institute mission is to foster comprehensive research, education, and public
outreach programs designed to:
Improve knowledge of the physical, chemical, and biological processes in aquatic
systems (rivers, lakes, oceans, estuaries, wetlands, and ground waters).
Enhance understanding of the interactions and interrelationships between human attitudes
and activities, and aquatic systems.
Develop and promote the adoption of improved methodologies for water management
and policy (including quantity, quality and ecosystem services) based on a strong
background in water-related sciences, engineering, management and law.

3. Vision and Values

Success of the Water Institute mission requires that we:
Stimulate productive interdisciplinary partnerships (i.e. successfully break down
disciplinary silos)
Build and maintain strong partnerships with Water Management Districts and State and
Local agencies
Facilitate discussions between regulatory agencies, industry and academia
Build strong externally funded grants program from state, national and international
sources (both competitive funds and earmarks)
Build water faculty at UF in under-represented disciplines
Obtain funding for new endowed professorships
Implement a strong visiting scholar program
Engage a robust, well-respected external council of advisors
Conduct a successful annual symposium
Distribute indirect costs in an equitable manner that fosters interdisciplinary work and
does not threaten department chairs or deans









Be perceived an honest broker (the go-to place to have problems solved) within UF, state,
nation, and world
Have an excellent Water Institute staff including a grants facilitator, communications
director, IT director, and accountant
Have an outstanding academic reputation within UF, state, nation, and world

A Successful Water Institute is built on an Affiliate faculty who:
Are world renowned, receive prestigious awards, have strong publication records in peer
reviewed journals, and are members of NAS, NAE, etc.
Publish white papers and synthesis articles for agencies and op-ed pieces in newspapers,
and are called on regularly by state and national press
Develop new solutions and technologies for state, national and international applications
Develop new knowledge that impacts state and national water policy
Train an excellent cadre of students

4. Organization

The Water Institute is led by a full-time Director, who reports to the Vice President for Research.
An internal Faculty Advisory Committee for the Water Institute consists of 12 members of the
Affiliate Water Institute faculty, 8 elected and 4 appointed on staggered 3 year terms. Individual
faculty association with the Water Institute is through voluntary registration in the on-line faculty
expertise database. All registered faculty are considered Water Institute Affiliate Faculty
members and eligible to vote for the Faculty Advisory Committee Members, and other
governance issues. All Affiliate Faculty members retain their positions in their tenure department
homes where all administrative and performance review functions are carried out.

For the first 3 years following the establishment of the Water Institute, participants in the
monthly Water Institute Distinguished Scholar Seminar Series will constitute an ad-hoc External
Council of Advisors for a 12 month period following their seminar. A Formal External Science
Advisory Board (SAB) will be formed at the conclusion of the third year (May 2009). The SAB
will consist of representatives leading academic institutions in the field of water science,
engineering, policy and law; state and federal governmental agencies; industry; non-
governmental organizations and other private entities with an interest in water related issues.

5. Action Plan

5.1 Research, Education and Outreach Thrust Areas
Research, Education and Outreach Thrust Areas are the main vehicle for facilitating
interdisciplinary research within the Water Institute. Thrust Areas provide broad outlines of
emphasis areas rather than narrow definitions of the Institute, and represent areas in which cross-
cutting collaboration is likely to produce significant progress. Potential Thrust Areas are
periodically proposed by the Affiliate Faculty, the Faculty Advisory Committee, the Science
Advisory Board and other external stakeholders. Proposed Thrust Areas are approved, assessed,
and eventually terminated by the Faculty Advisory Committee.









Table 1 Water Institute Research, Education and Outreach Thrust Areas
Water Resources Sustainability
o Development of Alternative Water Supplies (Desalination, ASR,
Reservoirs)
o Water Treatment, Wastewater Treatment, Groundwater Remediation
o Water Quality Protection, Management of Groundwater Recharge Areas
o Water Conservation, Reuse, Demand Management
o Impacts of Alternative Energy Supplies on Water Resources

Water, Land Use and Ecosystems
o Linking Terrestrial and Coastal Systems (Estuaries and Coastal Zone)
o Springsheds
o Wetlands
o Watersheds
o MFLs, TMDLs, BMPs, Ecosystem restoration

Water and Climate
o Extreme Events (Floods, Flood Control, Droughts, Hurricanes)
o Climate Variability (ENSO phase, MDO)
o Climate Forecasts
o Climate Change (Global warming, sea level rise, rainfall redistribution)

Water and Society
o Water Policy and Law
o Water Pricing
o Water Marketing
o Social Impacts and Implications (religion, poverty, social equity)
o Public Health


Initial Thrust Areas proposed by Affiliate Faculty during the 2006 Survey and Retreat Process
are summarized in Table 1. Within Thrust Areas the following types of activities are conducted:
Interdisciplinary Faculty Working groups develop peer reviewed white papers and
synthesis documents, as well as proposals for interdisciplinary extramurally-funded
research, education and outreach projects
Interdisciplinary Faculty Teams work on funded research, education and outreach
projects
Graduate students and Post-doctoral fellows work on funded projects
Sabbatical Fellows work on proposal development, white-paper development, funded
projects
Seminar speakers and short-term visitors are hosted to build community, provide
brainstorming venues, and to develop partnerships, joint proposals etc.









5.2 Strategy to Engage Faculty
The following activities are conducted to foster internal academic cohesiveness among Water
Institute Affiliate Faculty, and to focus internal energy and intellect on important
interdisciplinary water-related science, engineering, policy and law problems of the State of
Florida, the Nation and the World. These activities enhance graduate student and faculty
recruitment and retention, and help develop and promote Water Institute faculty programs:

Creation and maintenance of a Water Institute faculty expertise data base
Creation and maintenance of a database of extramural funded projects led by Water
Institute faculty.
Creation of a network of interdisciplinary laboratories (both existing and new facilities)
to support water-related research conducted by Water Institute faculty
Formation and coordination of Faculty Working Groups along Water Institute Thrust
Areas
Annual Program Initiation Fund to provide funding for new, faculty-initiated research,
extension and outreach programs
Proposal writing support for large interdisciplinary proposals
Matching funds for extramural interdisciplinary proposals
Project management support for large interdisciplinary projects
Monthly Distinguished Scholar Seminar Series
Annual Water Institute Symposium

5.3 Strategy to Engage Existing Departments and Centers
The Water Institute provides a focal point for water-related research and education on campus
and an entry point for external stakeholders seeking water-related expertise. Therefore the
Institute must provide a portal to, and integrate the water-related programs in, existing
University of Florida disciplinary academic departments; interdisciplinary water-related clusters
and certificates (e.g the Hydrologic Sciences Academic Cluster (HSAC) and the Wetland
Science Concentration); on-campus Centers (e.g. the Water Resources Research Center and the
Public Utilities Research Center); and off-campus Research and Education Centers (e.g. the
IFAS Research and Education Centers).

The following services are provided to Departments/Centers that affiliate with the Water
Institute:

Inclusion in a web-accessible Department/Center water programs database
Link to Department/Center's website from Water Institute webpage
Promotion of Department/Center's water-related research and education programs
Collaboration on large-scale interdisciplinary proposals of mutual interest
Joint hosting of meetings with external stakeholders and potential sponsors of mutual
interest
Referral of appropriate research and outreach opportunities encountered by Water
Institute Director.









5.4 Strategy to Engage External Partners
The following strategies are pursued to engage external state, national and international partners
in Water Institute programs. These activities create and foster external recognition that the
University of Florida has a diverse but organized critical mass of expertise in water-related
sciences, engineering, policy and law. These activities increase extramural funding, improve
graduate student recruitment, and enhance stakeholder satisfaction with Water Institute
programs:

Establish and maintain a formal network with external stakeholders to identify critical
water issues requiring interdisciplinary collaboration of UF Water Institute Faculty
Provide one-stop shopping for UF water expertise to stakeholders
Provide short-term assistance (i.e peer review services, short courses etc. ) to external
stakeholders
Establish and maintain external financial resources to support basic and applied research
programs, and testing of new technologies, management strategies, regulatory strategies
and water policies that address stakeholders' interests
Host stakeholder scientists to work for short periods at the Water Institute
Coordinate undergraduate and graduate internship programs for external stakeholders
Increase the pool of well-trained water-related scientists, engineers, planners for
employment with stakeholders
Host state, national and international symposia to highlight recent advances in water-
related sciences, engineering, policy and law of interest to external stakeholders

6. Performance Measures (to be completed)

7. Business Plan

The following summarizes the business plan for funding Water Institute programs:
Base funds from UF for Water Institute Director and staff salaries
Endowment funds for operating expenses
Grant funding from Research and Outreach Partners for Programs

Appendix 7: UF Water Institute Project Classification Policy


Externally funded Water Institute projects are recognized under one of the 3 following categories:


1. D Water Institute Affiliated Project. Project Team wishes project to be recognized as a
Water Institute Project, but no Water Institute services (e.g. technical, data management, project
management, agency liaison) are required or requested. A link to a project description and/or
website is supplied by project PI and is accessible from the Water Institute website. Project is
cataloged in searchable Water Institute Project database. Budget does not flow through the Water
Institute, Water Institute Director did not sign off on project and no IDC is taken.

2. D Water Institute Assisted Project. Water Institute Director/Staff were not responsible
for overall proposal coordination, but Water Institute Director signs off on the proposal indicating
agreement to provide Water Institute services (e.g. technical, data management, project
management, agency liaison), or acknowledgement that Water Institute assistance was
instrumental in proposal development (e.g. referral to a sponsoring agency, initial organization of
the project team, provision of matching funds). A link to a project description and/or website is
supplied by the project PI and is accessible from the Water Institute website. Project is cataloged
in searchable Water Institute Project database. IDC is accrued to the Water Institute (10.0%
Investigator and 7.5% Center) for the portion of the budget that is spent in the Water Institute for
desired services.

3. D Water Institute Directed Project. Project resulted from a Water Institute Program
Initiation Fund effort or Water Institute Director/Staff are responsible for overall proposal
coordination and project management. Project management as well as technical and data
management services may be directly budgeted in the proposal. Center IDC (7.5%) is accrued to
the Water Institute on the entire project budget. An additional 10.0% Investigator IDC is accrued
for that portion of the budget that is spent within the Water Institute. A link to a project
description and/or website is accessible from the Water Institute website. Project is cataloged in
searchable Water Institute Project database.

I understand that the following project [Insert Project Name Below]

is a
category [1, 2 or 3] project as indicated above.
