EPA will create assistance center

The Environmental Protection Agency is creating a new assistance center to help colleges and universities comply with environmental legislation, according to a press release from the EPA.

The center is part of an agreement between the EPA and the National Association of College and University Business Officers. According to the release, many colleges and universities maintain “many types of operations, such as laboratories, art studios, utility generation and transmission plants, dormitories, and water distribution systems,” which create environmental management issues.

The center will exist through the Internet to provide information about how to manage and improve these issues at colleges and universities in the U.S.
