School of Mines Provost speaks to House subcommittee

 The School of Mines was represented in Washington Tuesday as the House subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources held an oversight hearing on American Energy Jobs and Opportunities for Education.

School Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Duane Hrncir testified about the university's efforts to meet the needs of the growing energy industry with a new minor in petroleum systems and a broader energy resources initiative.

Subcommittee documents state, "The American energy boom has created new job opportunities across many sectors that require a skilled and educated workforce. Today's educational institutions are working to ensure that students and future generations are prepared to fill these jobs."

Many School of Mines graduates are already hired by oil and gas companies.
