Institute for Sustainability and the Environment

Welcome to DCISE

     
 

The Dyson Environmental House is home to the administration of the Dyson College Institute for Sustainability and the Environment.

The mission of the Dyson College Institute for Sustainability and the Environment (DCISE) is to bring together faculty, students and programs throughout the University that involve the environment and sustainability issues. The Institute functions as a dynamic academic center and resource for the Pace community and also engages members of the external community who are concerned about environmental issues.

The Institute employs contemporary resources for unique learning, research and service opportunities, and serves as a home to:

Environmental Studies and Science Department

Dyson College Nature Center

Dyson College Center for the Arts, Society, and Ecology

Environmental Consortium of Colleges & Universities

The Institute’s dedicated spaces, resources, and programs support students with various opportunities to fully engage in the interdisciplinary study of the environment through hands-on scientific, policy, conservation, and advocacy curricular and co-curricular activities and experiences.

Faculty, staff, and students also have access to excellent resources focused on sustainability and the environment.  Dyson College Institute for Sustainability and the Environment underwrites the University’s annual membership to the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), and the National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE). Pace University formed and serves as headquarters for the Environmental Consortium of Colleges & Universities.  Learn more about these memberships.
