Bowie State University Expands its Partnership With the Environmental Protection Agency

Bowie State University, the historically Black educational institution in Maryland, has announced a new five-year partnership agreement with the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Under the agreement the EPA will provide educational and practical experiences to Bowie State University students looking to enter careers in the federal government. Officials at the EPA will serve as student mentors. University students will be able to participate in EPA research projects and gain access to student internship programs at the agency.

Bowie State has been a partner of the EPA since 2009. Originally, only business students participated in the program. Now students from all academic areas, including education, criminal justice, and nursing, will have the opportunity to take advantage of the partnership.

Aminta H. Breaux, president of Bowie State University, stated that “the partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency provides invaluable experiential learning opportunities that bridge learning from the classroom to the workplace, deepens the learning for our students, and prepares them for success after graduation. With enhanced access to the EPA’s research facilities and instrumentation, Bowie State can continue to strengthen its academic programs through curriculum development in areas such as public and business administration, education, and environmental policy, to name a few.”
