LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Haskell Indian Nations University is partnering with the Environmental Protection Agency to promote science and environmental careers.
The university in Lawrence and the EPA’s office in Kansas signed an agreement Wednesday to promote interaction between Haskell students and EPA staff.
Karl Brooks, the EPA district’s regional administrator, says he hopes the agreement will encourage more Haskell students to apply for internships and jobs with the EPA.
He says it also should prompt EPA staff to help Haskell faculty with research, and give Haskell students knowledge they could use to help their tribes with environmental issues.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports EPA staff members also will be considered for adjunct faculty positions at the school.
