Signature Partners

The seven InCEES partners are leaders on campus and in their individual fields. Each partner uses their own operating framework and mission to educate students, advance research initiatives, cultivate partnerships and engage the community in their particular scope of work. The partners include:  Consortium for Clean Coal Utilization (CCCU), the Environmental Studies Program, The Living Earth Collaborative, McDonnell Academy Global Energy and Environment Partnership (MAGEEP), the Office of Sustainability, Tyson Research Center, and the Washington University Climate Change Program (WUCCP). The University continues to invest significantly in these institutional resources to provide critical infrastructure for these endeavors.



The Consortium for Clean Coal Utilization (CCCU) aims to improve public understanding of the role of coal as a source of energy, and advance technologies for clean utilization of coal as both a dependable, low cost source of energy and a reliable chemical feedstock.
