The History of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

The History of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

NYU Washington, DC's fall course, "History of American Environmental Policy," and the NYU Department of Environmental Studies will host a discussion with three recently retired executives from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  

With nearly 100 years of combined experience at the Agency, these individuals helped to establish the country’s primary institution for environmental protection and will reflect on the ways the Agency has changed over its nearly 50 years of operation.

The New York University (NYU) program of study encourages student mobility among the University’s three main campuses (New York City, Abu Dhabi, Shanghai) and twelve academic centers.  Instruction and curricula at each campus/center is designed to introduce students to aspects of the host locale.  It is critical that students studying at NYU’s Washington Center be exposed to activities, resources, and people that are unique to Washington, DC, both as a city and as the center of U.S. federal government and policy.
