The ByWater Institute works with organizations across Tulane University and the world to deliver engaged scholarship on energy, environment, and resilience.  Community partnerships and outreach are cornerstones of most ByWater Institute programs.  Addressing the defining environmental problems of our time requires close collaboration and participation between educational institutions, researchers, decisions makers, industry, community leaders and community members. Community partnerships and participation are key to developing relevant research and effective policy on the environment. This is particularly true here in Louisiana, where the ByWater Institute strives to help communities build capacity to address environmental challenges such as coastal restoration, storm events, and environmental hazards. Please contact us if you would like to work with us or learn more about our community engagement and public outreach efforts.
