The James E. Clyburn University Transportation Center (JECUTC) is required to support research by faculty principal investigators that has particular value in the education of student researchers and increasing the numbers of minorities and women entering the transportation profession. Additionally, the JECUTC produces high-quality peer-reviewed research and publishes research in peer-reviewed journals.
