The need for carbon-free forms of energy has made the intersection of energy and environment stronger than ever.

We will cover both conventional and renewable forms of energy production with an emphasis on understanding the pros and cons of different technologies.

The idea behind the Faculty GUR Group is that faculty–as well as students–need to sustain their general education. With this in mind, the Faculty GUR Group was formed to bring together faculty from different departments across the university in a learning community that will seek to enhance each participant’s general education by relying on each other’s domain of expertise.
