JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Missouri's Lincoln University are planning to work together to promote careers focusing on the environment.

The regional office of the EPA says officials of the school and the agency will announce details of the partnership Friday in Jefferson City, where Lincoln is located.

The EPA says it wants to help Lincoln, a historically black college, become an environmentally conscious campus and help prepare African-American students for careers in environmental and scientific fields.
