Kwame Awuah-Offei, professor of mining engineering at Missouri S&T, is spending 12 months with the Securities and Exchange Commission on an Intergovernmental Personnel Agreement (IPA) appointment to review publicly traded mining company disclosure requirements and help the SEC find ways to improve the regulations for mining companies and their investors.

“Someone from Missouri S&T gets to help shape how mining companies do business for the next 20 or 30 years,” Awuah-Offei says. “That’s an important endeavor. It reflects how strong Rolla mining engineering is and that
good things are happening in Rolla, Missouri S&T has a long history of mining excellence.”
