With now a decade of experience, the Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute has become a global leader in enhancing knowledge, fostering future water and food security leaders and developing effective techniques to sustainably manage water and increase food security. In the next decade, it is combining funding from the Robert B. Daugherty Foundation and other sources to ensure long-term sustainability and maximize its impact.
In 2016, the Robert B. Daugherty Foundation challenged the University of Nebraska (NU) Foundation to create $1.5 million in new endowed funds to support students “engaged in the mission and goals” of DWFI.
Peter G. McCornick, who has led the Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute as executive director since 2016, has been reappointed for a second five-year term.
As DWFI’s reputation and expertise in effective water management grows, so do opportunities to make a difference in communities both local and abroad.
