Dealing with California’s Drought in UCR Magazine

The Fall 2014 issue outlines solutions from UCR faculty

UCR Magazine’s Fall 2014 issue talks about the ways our researchers can help California deal with the drought.

We all know how serious this drought is. Our lawns are brown, our food prices are rising, and signs of water conservation pop up on TV shows, social media and freeway signs.

UC Riverside researchers are focused on solutions, from developing drought-tolerant plants to recycling water safely. Find all of these ideas — as well as the various ways we save water on campus — in our cover story.

Then read about UCR’s first students and check out just how much the campus has changed since 1955. (Don’t forget that Homecoming is on Nov. 15, and that you can show off your Highlander pride by assembling your very own mini-Scotty, available to download here.)

Professor Tiffany Ana López talks to us about how the arts saved her life, and the circumstances that led to becoming the Tómas Rivera endowed chair. Lastly, three speakers from Chancellor Kim Wilcox’s symposia on the American university explain why UCR is the model for the future of higher education in this country.

And as always, we have a ton of online extras — videos, slideshows and more — on our website,
