Carnegie Mellon researchers are working to address the regulatory issues that shape the global marketplace.
2: The Carnegie Mellon Electricity Industry Center (CEIC) was established in August 2001 after an extended competition sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundatioan among a number of research universities. It is one of 20 centers of excellence in different industries that the Sloan Foundation has established at 13 universities. CEIC's primary mission is to work with industry, government and other stakeholders to address the strategic problems of the electricity industry. In doing so, CEIC produces a cadre of well-trained researchers, many of which will continue to address the industry's problems in subsequent professional careers. In addition to doctoral education, CEIC has a broad educational mission which includes the development of university courses, special topic short-courses and curricular advice for training programs.
3: Pro-Bono Consulting Working in partnership with the Consulting Club, teams of students are working with local organizations in the Pittsburgh area to address specific issues. Projects include business & strategic planning, procurement & operations analysis and marketing planning. Students are continually looking for new ways to incorporate social responsibility themes into current classes and exploring topics for new classes. In addition, students are exploring how the UN’s Principles for Responsible Management Education can be incorporated into the curriculum. Students are working in conjunction with Carnegie Mellon University’s Green Practices Committee offer the campus community a way to offset their green house gas generation with a donation to Carnegie Mellon that will be used to purchase renewable energy.
