 EPA AND SPELMAN COLLEGE TO SIGN ACADEMIC RELATIONS AGREEMENT
 ON JULY 17 IN ATLANTA
 ATLANTA, July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on July 17 with Spelman College to develop a mutually beneficial program that will assist Spelman College in enhancing its research and educational capabilities, and assist EPA in achieving its mission of environmental protection.
 The agreement will be signed by EPA Deputy Regional Administrator Patrick M. Tobin and Spelman College President Johnetta B. Cole on July 17 at 9:30 a.m. at Spelman College.
 The Academic Relations Program was established by EPA in order to help meet the requirements of the agency's research, environmental, and scientific needs, and a national policy of full participation of all citizens. While the need for well-trained, qualified scientists and engineers in EPA has increased, the number of students, particularly minorities, electing to pursue science and engineering degrees has decreased. The Academic Relations Program was implemented to ensure an adequate supply of highly trained technical personnel for the accomplishment of environmental research and development programs.
 Specific activities by EPA to support Spelman College may include training grants, temporary assignments of faculty member to EPA, student internships and employment and the development of research capability.
 Spelman College is one of more than 20 campuses nationwide that will participate in the Academic Relations Program. In the Southeast, Memphis State University, the University of Miami, Clark Atlanta, and Florida A&M will also participate in the program.
