NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY MISSOURI SOUTHERN STATE UNIVERSITY

Agreement signed with St. Charles Community College for Environmental Health and Safety program

Joplin, MO (SNS) – Officials from Missouri Southern State University and St. Charles Community College near St. Louis signed a new articulation agreement on Wednesday, April 9, designed to promote the growing Environmental Health & Safety program.

The degree program requires 45 core hours of courses. The general education and science classes will be completed at the community college, with the environmental health courses from Missouri Southern offered online. Exams from those courses will be proctored by faculty at St. Charles.

Students who complete the program and pass their senior assessment exam obtain their Certified Environmental Health Specialist credentials with the state of Missouri as well as their bachelor’s degree.

“The agreement demonstrates the importance of bringing faculty members from each campus together and allows them to create educational pathways that will lead to productive careers,” said Chris Breitmeyer, vice president for academic and student affairs. “Our partnership with MSSU provides access to a quality program and we hope this is the first step in forging more collaborative relationships between our institutions.”

The Environmental Health program at Missouri Southern recently made the change to become Environmental Health and Safety, with a new emphasis on better preparing students for the job field, said Interim President Dr. Alan Marble.

“The changes to the Environmental Health degree program are a great example of the university’s ongoing Continuous Quality Improvement efforts,” he said. “This partnership increases the value of the degree and allows students to better market themselves to potential employers.

“This agreement will increase the program’s numbers while allowing students at St. Charles Community College to obtain the degree without leaving their own campus.”
