Area high school students are invited to attend “Environmental University,” an exciting and educational program held each Fall on the Pace University Pleasantville campus. The event provides an overview of various opportunities to enhance awareness of urgent environmental issues and to showcase several current Pace educational initiatives.

This year’s program will feature a number of graduate students and Pace faculty presenting their research and discussing various areas of expertise. Activities will include dialogue with faculty and students through an interactive forum and a series of hands-on programs.

This unique learning experience will take place on Tuesday October 17, 2017, between 8:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

Registration is now full. If you would like to be added to a priority list for next year's event, email Angelo Spillo at aspillo@pace.edu.
