EPA Signs Memorandum of Understanding with LeMoyne–Owen College
(04/14/16 - ATLANTA) – On Thursday April 14, 2016, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with LeMoyne-Owen College to enhance research, teaching, outreach, career development, and stewardship in environmental and mathematical sciences. As a part of the MOU, EPA will commit to enhance the college’s environmental policy and science curricula and offer opportunities for students interested in environmental careers.
Carol L. Kemper, Deputy Director, Air, Pesticides & Toxics Management Division, EPA Region 4 and LeMoyne-Owen President Dr. Andrea Lewis Miller participated in the signing held in Dorothy Harris Lounge of the Alma C. Hanson Student Center on the LeMoyne-Owen campus.
Through this MOU, the partners express their intention to establish cooperative working relationships over the next three years, in areas of mutual interest, including participation by the Institutions in the EPA Region 4 Environmental Science Partnership Program. This MOU is also intended to help to address the dwindling participation of students in environmental fields of study, and to help EPA attract a workforce that is as diverse as the public we serve.
