Utilities official graduates from Duke University leadership program

Duke University’s Water Innovation Leadership Development Fellows, including Las Cruces Utilities Deputy Director Environmental Services and Technical Support Carl Clark.

Las Cruces Deputy Director Environmental Services and Technical Support Carl Clark graduated from Duke University’s Water Innovation Leadership Development executive education program. After the year-long program, Clark will bring new approaches to new water and wastewater management, sharing what he learned from experts in the industry.

WILD, launched in 2021, introduces mid-career water and wastewater managers to new approaches and resources for dealing with some of the most pressing issues facing the water services sector today, from funding shortfalls and aging infrastructure to climate impacts and uncertain population trends.

WILD Fellows take part in six online sessions and two intensive three-day workshops at Duke’s campus in Durham, North Carolina. Industry experts and leading researchers facilitate the sessions and workshops and provide coaching to Fellows, but there’s also a big emphasis on peer-to-peer learning, said Martin Doyle, professor of river systems science and policy at Duke’s Nicholas School of the Environment, who serves as faculty lead on WILD.
