Our Faculty 

From housing and urban policy, to natural resources law, to economic analysis of environmental regulation, and leading environmental policy, NYU has an exceptional core of academic faculty whose work is dedicated to environmental and land use issues. Students may interact with clinical professors in one of the two clinics in the area, learn from leading experts on our adjunct faculty, or take classes with professors who hold permanent positions in other schools at NYU, such as the Wagner Graduate School of Public Service or the Graduate School of Arts and Science.
