Harris Energy and Environmental Policy Association

About Us

This organization represents the merger of the Chicago Environmental Policy Association and Harris Energy Association.

The Chicago Environmental Policy Association (CEPA) was formed in 2003-04 for the purpose of creating a forum for environmental policy issues at the Harris School of Public Policy and the University of Chicago. The focus of CEPA is to attract speakers, promote the connection between policy analysis and practical application, and enhance the environmental policy concentration at the Harris School by drawing the interests of qualified students and distinguished faculty to the Harris School and the University as a whole.

The Harris Energy Association's (HEA) goal is simple: to connect students, alumni, and faculty, to the people, institutions, and ideas that are shaping the future of energy policy. We work to complement––not duplicate––the efforts of EPIC, Chicago Harris, and the University with a particular emphasis on providing Harris students support and networking opportunities with University communities, alumni, and beyond. In the past HEA has hosted Energy on Tap, an informal conversation with faculty and others on their research, alumni events, student panels on energy related courses, and outside speakers. Through these efforts we strive to elevate the reputation of energy research at Chicago Harris.
