About Us

UK Beyond Coal is a campaign that launched in January 2010 to help transition the University of Kentucky away from coal to 100% clean and renewable energy sources. This is part of a national campaign officially sponsored by the Sierra Student Coalition and the Sierra Club on over 30 university campuses to shut down or replace campus-based coal plants to end our schools’ dependence on coal.

UK has had some great efforts in the past, especially this past semester with the campaign against the Wildcat ‘coal’ lodge. This campaign will be working to pull together these past efforts on UK’s campus to move the University forward and transition away from coal.

Young people are organizing coast-to-coast and already making their campuses model institutions with efficiency, renewable energy and more. Now it’s time to finish the job and demand an end to dirty, dangerous and outdated coal. To read more about some of the universities involved and campuses that have successfully transitioned beyond coal, check out our report: Moving Campuses Beyond Coal.
