It is the duty of Pace’s Office of University Special Events to plan, produce, and manage a variety of educational and innovative events catering to the University’s key constituents – students, faculty, staff, alumni, and benefactors. These events range from commencement exercises to presidential debates to community outreach programs. They not only help the University market itself to a broad audience, but also enrich the lives of the Pace Community. 

The Office of University Special Events also seeks to create both internal and external relationships to enhance student education and campus life. As an institution of higher learning, the University’s educational responsibilities include a commitment to cultural, social, and economic development of the local community.
