The program recently caught up with Professor Steve Cohen, who holds distinguished academic roles at the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs and the Columbia School of Professional Studies, and leads the Research Program on Sustainability Policy and Management at the Earth Institute. He is also the program director for two renowned graduate programs, the M.S. in Sustainability Management and the M.P.A. in Environmental Science and Policy.
