The Water Resources Institute is an academic partnership with the Southern California communities we serve driven by the vision that sustaining water resources rests on sound research, analysis and public policy collaboration.
Commonly referred to as the WRI, we were founded in 1999 when Cal State San Bernardino accepted a premier collection of historical water resource materials from Joseph Andrew Rowe. Additional archival materials have been donated by an array of public agencies, private firms and individuals, including elected officials, engineers, attorneys and business leaders. The collection contains technical journals, engineering and planning reports, well records, maps, aerial photos, pamphlets, government documents and books.

A brief description of the institution’s formal community partnership to advance sustainability (3rd partnership):

Transportation plays a major role in the Inland Empire of Southern California, and the William and Barbara Leonard Transportation Center is the voice for an integrated and sustainable transportation system in our region. The Inland Empire is an inland port region expected to grow exponentially in the logistics and transportation sector. The region, with informed decisions, can use this growth to develop a strong economic base. Our focal points include transportation management, the impacts of technology on transportation and logistics, and transnational studies. Research influences our education initiatives and community outreach efforts, which in turn substantiate policy produced by the LTC. The Center seeks solutions to assist residents, businesses, government and nonprofit agencies, and international partners work together on improving sustainability and life in the Inland Empire.
