S&T, energy the solution to state’s economic woes

The national recession has affected all sectors of the economy, including higher education. And while S&T is tightening its belt to deal with the economic downturn, Chancellor John F. Carney III maintains that this university’s focus on technology, energy, infrastructure and environmental research can help put the nation on the road to economic recovery.

“We’re committed to being part of the state’s solution to today’s tough financial environment,” Forsee said in announcing the summit last December. “We have talented faculty and researchers whose expertise could drive a stronger economy from one community to the next across our state. We need to innovate our way forward, and we’re uniquely positioned to do so.”
S&T’s emphasis on energy research and education “puts us in a solid position to make Missouri a leader in renewable and alternative energy,” says Carney.
The energy summit, with keynote speaker T. Boone Pickens, will be held April 22-23 on the Columbia campus to allow for more seating availability. For more information, go to http://e3.mst.edu.
