Administrative History

Robert B. Annis Water Resources Institute (AWRI), named for Robert B. Annis, was established by Grand Valley State University in 1985 to integrate research, education, and outreach that enhances and preserves freshwater resources. In 1967, D.J. Angus donated a boat that Grand Valley teachers and students could take out on small trips on Lake Michigan to analyze lake bottom sediments and observe water chemistry and aquatic life. The Institute grew out of these initial small trips and was officially named in 1985. A new boat, called the D.J. Angus in honor of the Institute's first donator, was launched on June 13, 1986. AWRI offers programs in Ecological Research, Information Services, and Education and Outreach. AWRI is located in Muskegon Michigan on Lake Michigan.
