A partnership between the U.S. Forest Service and four HBCUs (Alabama A&M University, Florida A&M University, Southern University, and Tuskegee University) is building on a decadeslong relationship between AAMU and the agency. The consortium is creating a pipeline and foundation for paths to forestry, ecology, agriculture and firefighting careers.
