Center for Energy & Environmental Education

Join us in empowering Iowans with the knowledge, experiences, tools, and inspiration needed to create a sustainable and desirable future for our communities.

The Center for Energy & Environmental Education (CEEE) creates opportunities for UNI students, faculty, and staff to work with community partners and leaders to arrive at evidence-based, solution-oriented responses to the problems they wish to address. We offer technical assistance, educational programs, and leadership in energy conservation, renewable energy, environmental conservation, and community-based agriculture. The CEEE serves Iowa cities, counties, school districts, teachers, farmers, businesses, elected officials, state agencies, community leaders, citizen organizations, and individuals.
