With California facing the most severe drought in decades, California State University San Marcos will offer a new certificate program in water leadership and management.
The university said its Water Leadership & Management certificate is designed for those currently working, or interested in working, in the water management industry and prepares middle-level managers for leadership roles.
“We’re at a crossroads in terms of water management training here in California,” said Mike Schroder, dean of extended learning. “To keep the water and wastewater industries performing at peak levels, it is imperative that we provide the next generation of leaders with the multidisciplinary training needed to effectively address the demands of this indispensible and rapidly evolving business sector. ”
Fall courses in the program include Water Resource Planning & Development, Leadership in Water Organizations, and both Human Resource Management and Financial Management for the Water Industry. Classes meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the San Marcos campus.
A free information session for the water leadership and management program will be held on Sept. 9. Information and registration are available online.
