WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — The Environmental Protection Administration's regional director will become a visiting scholar at Pace University's law school.

Pace Law announced Tuesday that Judith Enck will become a visiting scholar effective Feb. 1.

The Democratic appointee previously told the Times-Union of Albany that she's stepping down from her EPA post Friday, the day Republican Donald Trump becomes president.

Pace says Enck will collaborate with faculty, guest lecture and work closely with students in the environmental law program. Enck's Pace positon runs through May.
