Grambling State University to Partner With the Environmental Protection Agency

Historically Black Grambling State University in Louisiana has entered into a partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Under the agreement, the two entities will collaborate in preparing students to enter and compete in the federal workforce. The Environmental Protection Agency will offer expertise to review and enhance Grambling’s curriculum and students and faculty will participate in research efforts to promote environmental awareness.

In addition, EPA will be able to participate in career fairs and other outreach opportunities during the academic year to provide publicly available information about opportunities at the EPA and the EPA employment process. Officials at the EPA will have the opportunity to volunteer to serve as mentors to GSU students, participate in panel discussions, lectures, and other on-campus events.

“We are thankful to the Environmental Protection Agency for their initiative in providing valuable opportunities to Grambling State University students,” said Richard J. Gallot Sr., president of Grambling State University. “Partnerships like these make it possible for our scholars to gain meaningful experience to position themselves competitively in this vital industry.”
