Pace Policy Grad Working for Senator Charles Schumer
Nicole Virgona ’18, MA in Environmental Policy, is working as the regional deputy director of Senator Charles Schumer’s (D-NY) Hudson Valley office, sustaining the MA in Environmental Policy program’s 100 percent post-grad employment rate. Virgona credits earning her “dream job” to her experience in Pace’s Environmental Policy Clinic, and the dedication of Michelle Land, director of Pace’s Master of Environmental Policy program.
Environmental Studies student Brooklyn Flick ’24 shares her experience interning at Sustainable Westchester. “As I move forward in my college career, I have begun to desire a way to put into practice what I have been learning in my classes. Therefore, when the opportunity to work with a company called “Sustainable Westchester” in their Zero Waste division opened up, I knew it sounded exactly right; or Recycle Right as I was later told.”
The Environmental Studies and Science department is hosting a Fall Speaker Series on Environmental Science and Policy. Our kick-off event on September 29 is a virtual webinar by Dr. Susanne Moser about science-practice interaction and communication on climate change resilience.
