Joseph Constantino Morreale, PhD, desired to be an educator from an early age. He enjoyed the idea of transferring his knowledge to students who were just being exposed to the field. While studying toward a doctoral degree, he was an assistant professor of economics at Western Michigan University from 1970 to 1974 before briefly serving as a research associate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison for the following year. From there, Dr. Morreale began his career at the University of Pittsburgh in 1975, serving the next four years as an assistant professor and associate professor of economics, and assistant professor and associate professor of health services administration. In 1979, he relocated to Bard College, where he was an associate professor and full professor of both environmental studies and economics. He also notably served as a visiting professor at Lancaster University in England from 1984 to 1985.
Beginning in 1989, Dr. Morreale commenced his tenure at Pace University, where he started as a professor, adjunct professor of law and chairman of the Department of Public Administration until 1996. During this time, he was also an adjunct professor of public administration at the State University of New York at Albany. From 1996 to 1998, he was the vice provost of planning assessment and institutional research at Pace University, having thereafter been the vice president of planning, assessment, research and academy support until 2003. A past chief academic officer and provost for four years, he subsequently served as chair of the Department of Economics, a position he has held since 2014. In his positions, he teaches public finance, senior economic research seminar, public economic policy analysis, the political economy of U.S.-China relations and a China travel study abroad course. Impressively, he was the founder of the Chinese economics studies program and the Confucius Institute at Pace University. During this time, he was also a visiting professor at the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology for seven years.
A frequent consultant to federal agencies, state and local governments, and private firms, as well as an experienced speaker and conferences and professional meetings, Dr. Morreale has contributed articles to esteemed journals, edited multiple texts, and authored several more books.
