Pace Partners with AHRC for Tech Collab
Last month, AHRC middle/high school students began a collaborative project with students from Pace University, which was created to emphasize community engagement and technology-based programs. This partnership, facilitated in part by Seidenberg Professor James Lawler and Pace Professor Emeritus and AHRC NYC Board Member Marilyn Jaffe-Ruiz, allows Pace students to be paired with a student from AHRC. Both Pace and AHRC students stand benefit from developing new relationships, accessing their local communities, learning new technologies, using their creativity, and practicing their presentation skills.

Passing Policy
The Pace Environmental Policy Clinic kicked off the spring semester with 13 undergraduate clinicians tackling three exciting cases. In Pleasantville, the Clinic is developing policy and mitigation alternatives to protect wildlife that are killed on state highways, and is bringing a bill to the New York State legislature to ban the use of elephants in circuses. In NYC, clinicians are working to replace outmoded policies that are an obstacle to the Billion Oyster Project's goal to restore one billion live oysters to New York Harbor. Pace Law students are assisting the clinicians with their legal research and policy development on each of their cases.
