Goals and Objectives

Pace University recognizes the changing landscape of higher education and is committed to providing a high quality distributed education environment for its students. The University will develop coherent offerings of certificate and degree programs that are totally online or are taught in a rigorous web-assisted format. The University in developing these certificate and degree programs will increase its population by attracting new students—traditional as well as non-traditional.   Recognizing that ongoing support is needed for a student-centered approach to distributed learning, the University will establish a sustainable funding mechanism for distance education.  The Provost's Council on Distance Education's primary goals and objectives focus on 3 key areas, which are as follows: academic excellence, image and positioning, and financial responsibility.
