An Integrated Approach to Environmental Challenges
The study of the environment is inherently interdisciplinary. Mitigating our environmental ills and avoiding further harm to the environment cannot be achieved by any single discipline acting alone. Securing the future of Earth’s diverse life forms and the ecosystems in which they are interdependent relies upon the thoughtful integration of society’s various areas of knowledge, supported by an ethical framework.
Pace University is uniquely positioned to approach environmental issues in a truly interdisciplinary fashion. As such, Pace Academy engages expertise across the departments within the University’s Schools and College, to advance the understanding of the mutually enhancing relationship between nature and society. Through its programs, Pace Academy fosters curricular, scholarly, policy, and experiential, practice-based opportunities for our students, faculty, and broader community.
