BizEd: "Idea Central"

BizEd: "Idea Central"

. . . Embracing an interdisciplinary purpose brings a sense of excitement to a business school and its entrepreneurial center, says Bruce Bachenheimer, who directs the Entrepreneurship Lab (eLab) at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business. Opened in February 2012 in a building near New York City Hall, eLab’s purpose is not only to augment the school’s entrepreneurship curriculum with events and services, but also to bring together the schools of business, arts and sciences, health professions, education, and computer science and information systems in crossdisciplinary problem solving.

“I recently met with education students who want to develop new educational technologies to teach STEM subjects to New York City high school students—they call themselves ‘edupreneurs,’” says Bachenheimer. “We’re working with nursing students to help them collaborate with computer science students to develop mobile apps for the field of gerontology. Bringing together students from different colleges has been exciting.”

Pace Residence Hall Opens in Lower Manhattan as Part of Revitalization Plan

Pace Residence Hall Opens in Lower Manhattan as Part of Revitalization Plan

182 Broadway Officially Opened in Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

 

NEW YORK – Pace University officials formally opened the new residence hall for Pace students at 182 Broadway in lower Manhattan on Monday afternoon in a ribbon cutting ceremony. The ribbon cutting was followed by an open house with tours and reception.

Pace officials on hand included President Stephen J. Friedman, Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer William J. McGrath, Provost Uday Sukhatme, PhD, and Dean for Students Marijo Russell-O’Grady. President of the Residence Hall Association at Pace’s lower Manhattan campus, Steven Nolte, and Student Government Association President Michael Creneti represented students.

“This new 23-story residence hall provides wonderful housing for 600 students,” said Friedman at the ribbon cutting ceremony. “It is just one of three new buildings in our growing footprint in Lower Manhattan. Earlier this year, we opened a new Performing Arts Center at 140 William, home to Pace Performing Arts, one of our fastest growing programs and one of the best in the nation. And in 2015, we will welcome 700 students to Beekman Tower, another residence hall under construction at the corner of Beekman and William.”

“This new residence hall will be a major enhancement for generations of Pace students who value the experience of living and learning in lower Manhattan,” said McGrath. “We’ve been providing professional leaders and scholarship to the community since we started here 107 years ago, and we intend to be a force in the area’s continuing rebirth.”

The official unveiling followed four years of planning and construction as part of Pace University’s Master Plan to revitalize its campuses in lower Manhattan and Westchester County, NY.

The residence hall at 182 Broadway opened its doors this fall to students. Other University residences downtown are at 55 John Street, 106 Fulton Street and in the University’s multi-function building at 1 Pace Plaza, just east of City Hall. Construction recently began on another new residence hall at 33 Beekman Street. The university broke ground last week on a $100M revitalization project for its Pleasantville campus which includes two new residence halls and several other enhancements.

SL Green has conveyed a long-term ground lease condominium interest to Pace for the residence hall portion of the new building at 182 Broadway. Karl Fischer Architect from Montreal, Canada, with offices in New York City, is behind the design of the building. Pace’s real estate interests were represented by David A. Falk of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank; it was represented legally by Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP.

Entrepreneurship NYC: The Role of Universities in the NYC Ecosystem

New York, October 9, 2013 — Pace University’s Entrepreneurship Lab and the MIT Enterprise Forum of NYC will host a forum to discuss the role of universities in the New York City entrepreneurship ecosystem. The event takes place on Thursday, November 7 at Pace’s downtown New York City campus, east of City Hall and six blocks from Wall Street, in the Aniello Bianco Room of One Pace Plaza, 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The enormous impact universities have on regional economies can be clearly illustrated by examples such as Stanford in Silicon Valley and MIT in the Greater Boston area. In New York City, the role of universities extends well beyond research and technology transfer.

This event will explore that unique role through a panel discussion followed by an interactive session with the audience.

PanelistsEric Gertler, Executive Vice President, New York City Economic Development Corporation and Managing Director, Center for Economic Transformation for the City of New York; Orin Herskowitz, VP of Intellectual Property and Tech Transfer, Columbia University and Executive Director of Columbia Technology Ventures; Debera Johnson, Executive Director, Pratt Institute’s Center for Sustainable Design Studies and founder of the Pratt Design Incubator for Sustainable Innovation; and Geoffrey W. Smith, founding Director of the Center for Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and a co-founder and general partner of Ascent Biomedical Ventures. Moderator: Bruce Bachenheimer, Clinical Professor of Management and Director of the Entrepreneurship Lab at Pace University.
