Pace provides a thriving environment for those willing to take advantage of its resources. During the 2010-2011 academic year, Dyson students played an important part in some exciting projects that let them apply what they learned in the classroom to the real world.Taking Opportunitas LiterallyA Look Inside the United Nations Commission on the Status of WomenDyson students had the chance to work behind the scenes at the Girls Stand Up! training workshop for the UN Commission on the Status of Women conference, learning advocacy techniques from Under-Secretary-General of the UN for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, Michelle Bachelet, former president of Chile.The students served as orientation volunteers at the event held at Pace's New York City Campus and, alongside more than 300 attendees from 22 nations, learned how to best advocate for causes affecting women worldwide. The event was co-sponsored by the Working Group on Girls, an international alliance of 88 non-governmental organizations closely affiliated with UNICEF.Producing on LocationThis year's popular "Producing the Documentary" travel course took undergraduate and graduate students to Belize to film Linda Thornton: Seeking Sustainability, One Shrimp at a Time alongside Associate Professor Maria Luskay, EdD, who developed the course, and New York Times "Dot Earth" blogger and Senior Fellow for Environmental Understanding at Pace Andrew Revkin. The student filmmakers followed the process from the ponds and breeding tanks of Belize's shrimp farms to seafood markets and plush restaurants of Manhattan in the short documentary.Students in the previous year's course won "Best in Category for Documentary" in the Indie Short Film Competition for their 2010 film, The Life of An American Ambassador: The Netherlands. Over the past 10 years, Luskay has taken students to Nassau, Brazil, Costa Rica, and Tuscany to produce films. 6 | Dyson College of Arts and SciencesExperiential Learning
