ExCit stands for Expanding Cities: People, Water and Infrastructure. ExCit is a student exchange program consortium of six universities in Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. The focus area for the program is decision making for meeting the growing demands on urban water resources systems. Student activities will consist of three stages: intensive language training, coursework in water resources and sustainable development, and professional or research internships with local businesses, municipalities, agencies or at the host university.
