Nebraska Water Leaders Academy

The Nebraska Water Leaders Academy is a project of the Nebraska State Irrigation Association and is supported through the Water Futures Partnership-Nebraska, a 501(c) (3) organization. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is a partner in delivering sound program curriculum.

Since 2011, men and women from every corner of Nebraska have met in a year-long program to learn the principles of first-rate leadership and about the vital role of rivers, streams and aquifers in Nebraska. The mission of the Nebraska Water Leaders Academy is to provide learning opportunities that focus on cooperative approaches to solving Nebraska’s water issues.
