Nancy Aries: Getting Students Excited About Education

Nancy_AriesProfessor Nancy  Aries knows a thing or two about the programming and educational opportunities that make Baruch College work. She has, after all, been a part of the development and evolution of much of it over the last three decades. Spanning both the faculty and administrative sides, Aries has become a well-known, well-liked member of the Baruch College family since beginning her career here in 1981. She was first appointed an assistant professor in the Zicklin School of Business’s former Health Care Administration program—later emphasizing the importance of health policy in the School of Public Affairs—fresh off the completion of a PhD in social welfare from Brandeis University’s Heller School. Read more about her work here.

September 13, 6:00 – 8:00 pm, The Politics of Fracking
14-220 NVC

A panel of experts will discuss how fracking is being addressed in the political and policy arenas. Do supporters of fracking exaggerate its economic benefits while understating its environmental harm? To what extent will fracking benefit local communities and not just the entrenched interests of the mining industry? Do opponents overstate the potential for environmental degradation? Should the decision to allow fracking be left to individual communities? If we reject fracking, what are the implications for the development of alternative sources of energy?
