A CHANGE of Pace

While many of us were enjoying the sun this summer, Pace student Diana Mendez ’15 juggled poverty, hunger, injustice, access for Latino youth to attend college, and a study abroad program in Italy.

“Women cocoa farmers in West Africa were not getting fair wages and their living conditions were horrible and they worked for companies like Nestle and Mars,” says Diana Mendez ’15. “So what Oxfam did, because the companies are located here, Oxfam advocated for the cocoa farmers, and took thousands of Crunch bars, M&Ms, and Oreos and rewrapped them in their own slogan and gave them out for free. We as consumers have so much power. We’re trying to say that we bought them all and gave them to you for free so you have this knowledge.”

This summer, the Business Management and Sociology double major put her classroom knowledge to use through the Oxfam America CHANGE Initiative, which empowers a select group of college students around the country to become engaged with the organization’s work and shape a new generation of global citizens at their own universities. Working outside of the U.S., Oxfam America develops long-term solutions to poverty, campaigns for social justice, and, ultimately saves lives.

“What I love about Oxfam America is they have headquarters around the world and each Oxfam aids other countries,” Mendez says. “We empower people all over the world by presenting them the information about company or government policies, resources, and materials they need. When people think of helping people in poverty, you don’t have to change their culture—just give them their human rights. That’s something a lot of people can relate to.”

And Mendez was no exception. This summer, she participated in a study abroad trip to Italy to learn more about the world that she wants to change. There, she met with the director of Oxfam Italia, who had spent seven years doing missionary work in Santo Domingo, where Mendez found an interesting connection.

“He helped fertilize soil of cocoa beans and he was able to feed 7,000 families in Santo Domingo. That helped the community where my mom was born and grew up. That’s how I want students to see it—you make a connection with the work you’re doing,” she says.

Through a rigorous training and leadership program, Diana was empowered to create CHANGE…and she’s starting right here at Pace, finding passionate students to join her new student organization—Oxfam America at Pace University.

And while Mendez has created her own change, she credits several Pace mentors for helping along the way.

“Sue Maxam has forever changed my life,” she says, of the University’s Interim Assistant Vice President for Undergraduate Education, who mentored Mendez throughout the Oxfam application process. “There was no way I could have done the work without the people who have helped me and believed in me.”

Through Maxam, Mendez met the Wilson Center’s Program Coordinator Lisa Heisman and found Latino U College Access at a Pace Career Services Fair. The organization’s founder and executive director, Pace alumna Shirley Buontempo, was speaking to a man about empowering Hispanic youth, which drew Mendez’s attention.

“She was talking about how passionate the Hispanic culture is, how much they care about work and education, how hard they need to work, and how important it is to empower them,” she says, prompting a fist-bump between Mendez and Buontempo as well as a unique connection. “I e-mailed her to say I would love to get together to talk about possibilities and opportunities, and how we and Sue could use our energy and passion to help the community, not to get a special edge to the internship.”

Buontempo saw Mendez’s passion and she was awarded a Wilson Center-funded internship at Latino U, where she used her experience and struggles as a first generation college student to help students with their college admission process and also helped secure Latino U an office right on Pace’s White Plains Campus.

All that, and she still had time to attend the International Young leaders Assembly at the UN this summer.

“I work hard doing what I like to do, which is helping people and communities. If you’re passionate about something, you should go for it… The best thing about being a Pace student is when you work hard, it all pays off. It’s kind of like Hogwarts—when you ask for help, help is given to you,” she said.

American Showstoppers and Art History Alive

Two fan favorites are back! American Showstoppers featuring the Fred Barton Orchestra and his star-studded cast take on Broadway legend Richard Rodgers. Plus, Pace Professor Janetta Rebold Benton, PhD, returns to the Schimmel to take you on a journey through France’s fascinating art.

ART HISTORY ALIVE: France’s Fascinating Art
October 9, 11:00 a.m. | October 16, 11:00 a.m. | October 23, 11:00 a.m. | October 30, 11:00 a.m.

From the Great Medieval cathedrals to Post-Impressionism, spend your Wednesdays delving into France’s fascinating art as Pace Presents welcomes Pace Distinguished Professor and renowned art historian Janetta Rebold Benton, PhD, back to the Schimmel for her third lecture series.

France is unequaled for her range of artistic styles and accomplishment—always with unparalleled French elegance and sophistication. Travel vicariously through the ages as these richly-illustrated lectures examine the highpoints of architecture, sculpture, painting, and decorative arts in France, from the late Middle Ages through Post-Impressionism, approximately 1000-1900.

October 9Middle Ages: Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals, sculpture, and stained glass: Romanesque, monsters, morals, and building methods from Autun to Vezelay. Gothic soaring cathedrals—Notre-Dame-de-Paris, Chartres, and Beauvais, too skeletal to avoid collapse.

October 16Renaissance and Baroque: Chateaux of the Loire Valley; Poussin, Louis XIV at Versailles: Join Renaissance and Baroque French royalty and enjoy life in the splendid chateaux and gardens of Chambord, Chenonceau, Versailles, and elsewhere.

October 23—Rococo, Neoclassicism, Romanticism, and Realism: Boucher, David, Gericault, Manet: The pendulum swings from light Rococo pastel fluff, to austere severe Neoclassicism, to Romantic escapes, and finally to the everyday genre scenes of Realism.

October 30—Impressionism and Post-Impressionism: Monet, Renoir, Degas, van Gogh, Gauguin, Cezanne, Seurat: Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists depicted subjects from daily life, but while the Impressionists painted in terms of light and atmospheric conditions, the Post-Impressionists used color to express emotion and to analyze pictorial structure.

The Conversation Continues: Lunch with the Lecturer will also be held after each lecture.

Laying Down the Law

Thinking about applying to school? Weigh more than 100 options at the 31st Annual Law Day on October 6 in NYC.

We’d feel strange not saying that Pace’s Environmental Law LLM is consistently ranked among the top three in the nation by U.S. News & World Report; the International Law JD gives students access to once-in-a-lifetime experiential offerings like the Pace London Law Program and summer internships at war crimes tribunals, and that with the variety of other programs, Pace is the place to turn your passion into practice.

That said, Pace Law School will be one of more than 100 law schools represented at the LatinoJustice 31st Annual Law Day on Sunday, October 6, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the NYC Campus.

Hear from expert panelists on what you can expect from the law school admissions process and about pre-law services you can access. A career panel will also highlight the myriad careers and opportunities that are attainable with a law degree, followed up by a Law School Fair.

At the end of the day, you’ll hear straight from the 1Ls, 2Ls, and more, as current law students lead an interactive “Ask a Law Student” session, where you’ll get your Q’s A’ed.

Register to attend here.

FoodYou

Waste. Kill. Share. Raise. Cultivate. Afford. The Pace Academy launches their 2013-2014 campaign to raise awareness about FoodYou…

Last year, the Pace Academy for Applied Environmental Studies made major waves with its University-wide water campaign: the .007% campaign. This academic year, they’re moving from what we drink to what we eat, launching the FoodYou Campaign.

Pace Academy’s FoodYou Campaign is about the way that our choices, as individuals and as a society, intersect with the environment. During this 2013-2014 awareness initiative, we will examine some of the many pieces that are set in motion by what we put on our plates. Through events and partnerships, the campaign will broaden the Pace Community’s understanding of our global food system. We’ll be talking about the FoodYou engineer, grow, kill, need, take, waste, trade, and share. Food has always been a bridge between people and their environment. Today, our food choices are not only influenced by our region, personal budgets, and culture but also international trade agreements, government subsidies and regulations, and climate change.

The FoodYou Campaign will shine a light on our system’s resources, production, and waste through a diverse set of educational and action-oriented events. Events will feature experts on animal welfare and genetic engineering in agriculture, as well as opportunities for students to visit an organic farm and local farmers markets. During the spring semester, Pace Academy for Applied Environmental Studies’ mock hearing on C.A.F.O.s in NY will give students the chance to influence policy on industrial livestock production.

But how do you get involved NOW? Well, FoodYousers, on Thursday, October 10, award-winning author Jonathan Safran Foer will join the Pace Academy via virtual classroom to discuss his book Eating Animals, which he wrote while exploring today’s food systems and presents what many consider the most important popular critique of industrial farming. For those on the Westchester Campus, head to the Miller Lecture Hall from 12:45 p.m.–1:30 p.m. In NYC, Lecture Hall West from 2:15 p.m.–3:00 p.m.

Keep up with the FoodYou Campaign by visiting www.pace.edu/foodyou.

This week, the Schimmel’s Pace Presents series is bringing you two events: session one in a brand new series of Acoustic Underground and acclaimed South Indian dance.

Acoustic Underground: Session 1
Thursday, October 3, 7:30 p.m.
A brand new Pace Presents series, Acoustic Underground will bring some of New York City’s singer-songwriter scene to the Schimmel.

Learn more about these talents and watch videos on the Schimmel blog.

Sannidhi (Sacred Space)
Saturday, October 5, 7:30 p.m.
The New York Times called her “thrillingly three-dimensional” and “enchantingly beautiful.” Dance Magazine, who named her one of the “25 to Watch” described her as “a marvel of buoyant agility and sculptural clarity.” On October 5, dancer and choreographer Aparna Ramaswamy, a protégé of legendary Bharatanatyam artist Alarmel Valli, will present the U.S. premiere of Sannidhi, illuminating the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine whose timeless duality forms the continuous pulse of the universe. In five sections, her work weaves together music and movement, rhythm and lyric, spirit and emotion, creating an invisible link between dancer, musicians, and audience.

And the best part? Student tickets cost just $5 for each show. Get ‘em while they’re hot at the Schimmel box office.

Next up at the Schimmel: Pace Distinguished Professor Janetta Rebold Benton, PhD, returns with her art history lecture series featuring France’s fascinating art beginning on October 9 and the Fred Barton Orchestra presents an evening with Richard Rodgers as part of the star-studded American Showstoppers series on October 12.

Sigma Lambda Upsilon, whose philanthropy is Literacy: Empowerment One Word at a Time, will explore the inconvenient truth about our nation’s education system. How has tenure hindered us? Who is accountable for what you learn? How are we funding our education system and is it fair? This event will take a deeper approach into why our educational system has fallen behind, what our government has done or not done to fix this institution, and how this will affect our country in the long run.
