COLUMBIA — Some students at the University of Missouri say the school should stop using coal at its campus power plant and use cleaner energy instead.

Student protesters planned to rally today as part of The Sierra Club's Coal-Free Campus campaign. A student organizer with the national environmental group says MU plays a prominent part in the national campaign.

The campaign is under way at more than 60 college campuses nationwide.
