Faculty Success - Spring 2020

The Meat(Less) of the Matter Will going vegan help fight climate change? Well, it depends on who you ask. Americans eat four times more meat than the global average, and the UN predicts that worldwide consumption of animal-based food will rise 80 percent in the next few decades. This rise in global meat-eating threatens to increase deforestation in the Amazon and other parts of the world, with the expansion of land needed for pasture, corn, and soybeans. Scientists on both sides of the debate...

Women in STEM: They're Setting the Pace

Global Impact

By Jillian Gorry ’11 Students travel abroad and return home, eager to share what they learned and committed to changing the world—one step at a time. It’s the first day of a new semester, and Pace students are ready to move. They packed all the essentials: laptop, charger, textbooks, a few snacks, and of course, their passport. That’s because they’ll be meeting their professor at JFK airport in just a few hours. Wouldn’t want to be late to class in another country! Study abroad has always been a mainstay in higher education, but what about a more structured travel experience for students looking to take advantage of an education beyond...
