HOUGHTON, Michigan (Michigan Tech News): Michigan Technological University is known for both its engineering and environmental know-how and its resources. Add to that the School of Business and Economics, the Great Lakes Research Center (GLRC) and a campus-wide commitment to multidisciplinary work, and you have just what the US Environmental Protection Agency is looking for.
The EPA has named Michigan Tech the new home of its Region 5 environmental finance center, a recognition that comes with a six-year grant of up to $5.6 million. EPA Region 5 covers Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.
An EPA team will be at Tech to conduct a site visit on Sept. 13-14.
