3 Minute Research

Last Spring, we offered for the first time a session that highlighted faculty research interest with the potential to hook up with colleagues with similar research interests. There were some collaborative efforts created! We would like to offer the workshop again but this time earlier in the semester so as to allow for follow-up. So, please join us to present your research interests, as well as hear from colleagues, in 3 minutes or less. We are hoping these rapid exchanges will foster opportunities for collaborative inter-disciplinary projects among your peers.

The session will be held twice, both sessions via videoconference. The choice of dates are listed below.

Emergency Preparedness for an Active Shooter Scenario

Unfortunately, the current climate that we live and work in dictates that we be prepared for emergencies of all kind.  At the request of several Pace faculty who have inquired about resources pertaining to an active shooter scenario on campus, we are offering the following workshop to the Pace community in order to heighten awareness of these potential incidents.  This session will provide guidance and best practices for helping to prevent and prepare for potential active shooter situations on campus. 

The session will be facilitated by Pace University Executive Director of Safety and Security Vincent Beatty and Mount Pleasant Police Officer Thomas Olsen.   We hope you join us for this very important and informative session.
