Meet the first person to receive the Ball Brothers Honors College Faculty Fellowship. Dr. Adam Kuban received $50,000 for a two-year dual appointment in the Honors College and Journalism Department. His focus is water access and water scarcity.

Ball Brothers was looking for a unique interdisciplinary program that would attract students from many disciplines across campus to study climate change and its influence on water resources.”

Kuban designed curricular independent courses evaluating climate change arguments as well as looking at statewide and global water issues. At the end of the core classes, students will have the opportunity to study abroad for two to three weeks in a developing nation.

“We’ll have learned about local water issues as well to bridge that connection, make that connection between the water issues here at home and internationally.”

Kuban’s appointment began in February 2018.
