Create Energy Opportunities: Give to the Great Lakes Energy Institute

When you support us, you support the infrastructure that brings together the students and faculty of Case Western Reserve University working with new energy technologies, policies, regulations, business principles and workforce development. Today this infrastructure is supporting over 75 faculty at CWRU in the Schools of Engineering, Law, Management, and Arts & Sciences that are working on energy proposals or concepts. Support of Case Western Reserve University’s Great Lakes Energy Institute enables more faculty to gain access to more research dollars to advance solutions for today’s energy demands.
