Lincoln University and the federal Environmental Protection Agency have been working together in one way or another since 1996.

On Friday afternoon, they expanded that cooperation by signing a partnership agreement intended to help "promote careers in environmental and scientific fields," EPA Regional Administrator Karl Brooks told about three dozen people gathered in the Inman Page Library's Teleconference Room.

"This agreement updates work the agency has already been doing with LU, and it enhances our ability to support research and educational capabilities here."
