The Founding Board of Trustees, representing both The World Water Organization (WWO)and The World Energy Forum (WEF), has announced the creation of the Energy and Water Institute of New York (EWI). The new university will work closely with the United Nations and the World Bank to train experts for their Member States on global issues involving energy, water, and the environment. EWI is to offer Master of Science (MS), Ph.D. and certificate programs in the areas of energy, water, and environment.

EWI will be a pioneering center for global research and graduate education in energy, water, and environment, with the mission of training new experts to create a sustainable future for all humanity. The University will be world’s first institution devoted exclusively to the multidisciplinary approach to the study of energy, water, and environment. The University will be a not-for-profit educational institution, chartered by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York, and the main campus will be located in the City of New York. This University will be supported by a combination of government and private grants and contracts, private philanthropy, student tuition and income from the endowment.

This new University is created under the following raison d’être:

  • Energy, water, and environment are the greatest themes of our time and we need to find answers through specialized research and train experts who will lead the governments and industry.
  • The issues of energy, water, and environment are interrelated and answers cannot be found isolated under traditional compartmentalized disciplines and we need a holistic multidisciplinary approach to these studies and research.
  • The world needs not just technical competence but also a broader understanding of the business, policy, economics, and political aspects of energy, water, and environment.
  • Energy, water, and environment transcend local concerns and they are truly global and planetary issues which necessitate a university that studies and researches the issues in a global context.
  • Energy and water are core issues for world development and elimination of extreme poverty, for which this university will cooperate with the United Nations and the World Bank in order to help achieve the UN Millennium Development Goals.

 

 

 

EWI Mission Statement

The mission of EWI is to generate, disseminate, and preserve knowledge, and to bring this knowledge to bear on the great challenges of the world in energy, water, and environment in the 21st century world. EWI is dedicated to provide its students with an education that combines rigorous teaching and research, and to develop in students the ability and passion to work wisely, creatively, and effectively for the advancement of humanity. EWI's teaching and research cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries and is based on relevance to the practical world where actions are taking place.
