President's Blog: iPace and Opportunitas

News Story

In his latest blog post, President Friedman discusses how iPace, Pace's online degree completion program, is bringing 21st century flexibility to our mission of "Opportunitas."

"Pace’s historic mission of Opportunitas has always included the type of students most interested in online learning—students who need quality, flexible education programs that fit into their busy and demanding working lives.

Years ago, many Pace students earned degrees by attending evening classes part-time. Many of these students couldn’t afford to attend college full-time, or they juggled full-time jobs and family responsibilities and couldn’t commit to full-time class schedules. Pace helped these students become thinking professionals and move beyond their means. Today there are 54 million working adults in the US with some college experience or an associate’s degree, but no bachelor’s degree. Many of these adults are veterans and members of the military. Offering online degrees and online degree completion programs allows Pace to offer a 21st century opportunity built on our century-old mission and help even more students realize their dreams of a college diploma."
