Through this MOU the partners express their intention to establish cooperative working relationships over the next four 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.
