Marley Bauce

Marley Bauce is the inaugural Associate Dean for Research within the Columbia Climate School. He created and now leads the new Office of Research, which holds responsibility for large-scale proposal development, pre-award research administration and compliance, interdisciplinary researcher team collaboration, researcher career development, and federal and industry affairs. Marley is responsible for nurturing and stewarding the Columbia Climate School's community of 500+ researchers, for supporting the acquisition of novel and high-impact extramural sponsorship, and for enabling a bold and nimble transdisciplinary research community.

Prior to joining the Climate School in 2021, Marley was the Director of Research Proposal Development within Columbia’s Office of the Executive Vice President for Research, wherein he was tasked with large-scale “center grant” proposal development, writing, project management, and non-academic partnership formation. To date, Marley has directly project managed and written grant proposals requesting $350M+ in federal sponsorship, and which have won $100M+ in awards.

For the last 15 years, Marley has served as an adjunct associate professor in NYU’s Graduate Program in Environmental Conservation Education, where he taught a core MA course in environmental philosophy and sociology. He holds an MPA in Management from Columbia and an MA in the Environmental Studies from NYU, and is currently pursuing a PhD in Education Policy from Teachers College, focusing in goal displacement, economic inequality in higher education, and organizational behavior.
