PACE UNIVERSITY RANKED MOST UNDERRATED COLLEGE IN AMERICA

PACE UNIVERSITY RANKED MOST UNDERRATED COLLEGE IN AMERICA

Experiential Learning and Future Earning Potential Cited as Strengths of Pace Education

NEW YORK -- November 3, 2015 – Pace University has been ranked the nation’s most underrated college on Business Insider’s just-released ranking of the 50 Most Underrated Colleges in America. The report highlighted the strength of Pace’s experiential learning program and its median mid-career salary.

“Pace University offers a world-class education that combines classroom instruction with real-world experiences,” said Pace University President Stephen J. Friedman. “We have an entrepreneurial approach to our programs, and we evolve as the needs of employers change with a strong focus on outcomes. As the value proposition of higher education is debated on a national level, we are uniquely preparing our students to succeed – and as the salary data shows, it’s working.”

In determining the rankings, Business Insider considered two factors: reputation and future earnings. The survey noted that Pace students “gain hands-on experience in their fields through internships, practicums and fieldwork.” Students’ academic experiences are enhanced by the opportunity to apply classroom learning in a pre-professional work environment, leveraging the University’s strong relationships with national and local employers in business, government, healthcare, nonprofit, technology and other sectors.

The median mid-career salary of Pace students, $95,200, was another factor in determining its ranking. Through individual counseling, seminars, career development workshops, career fairs and collaborative programs with faculty, alumni and employers, Pace students gain the tools to make career decisions, connect with employment opportunities and build their future earning potential.

About Pace University: Pace University is a comprehensive, independent University with campuses in New York City and Westchester County. Nearly 13,000 students are enrolled in undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the Lubin School of Business, Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems, School of Education, School of Law and College of Health Professions. http://www.pace.edu.

Variety: "TV Networks Likely To Push Back Against Republican Debate Demands"

Variety: "TV Networks Likely To Push Back Against Republican Debate Demands"

. . . One of the reasons why Republicans might be angered by current debates is the nature of trying to pin down a candidate early in the campaign process, said David A. Caputo, president emeritus and professor of political science at Pace University in New York. The moderator of a debate is trying to pin a candidate down on a particular issue or provoke an interesting response, the academic said, but candidates want distance from issues so they aren’t pigeonholed as the field narrows. In early debate, “if you notice, nine times out of ten, the question is not answered or it’s answered in such a way that it is critical of the question and the person who asks the question,” said Caputo. “It’s to be expected.”

Fast Company: "Three ways to get the most out of your group sessions"

10/28/2015

Fast Company: "Three ways to get the most out of your group sessions"

1. Make a plan

Many meetings don’t have a particular agenda, but it’s important to know what you want to accomplish going in. "Keep meetings short by limiting the agenda to three items or less," says Alan Eisner, professor of management at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business. "Afterward, send out minutes using your agenda so everyone knows what to work on."

2. Banish distractions

Put nonagenda thoughts into an "idea parking lot." "People bring up ideas that are important to them but not on-topic," says Cary Greene, coauthor of Simple Sabotage: A Modern Field Manual for Detecting & Rooting Out Everyday Behaviors That Undermine Your Workplace. "Instead of losing them, write them down." Don’t let the parking lot be a black hole: Assign follow-up steps right at the end of the meeting.

3. Play musical chairs

Walking meetings are gaining popularity, but you can get a similar benefit without hitting the hallway. Set a timer for 30 to 45 minutes. When it goes off, have everyone get up and move. "You can stand and shake it out a bit as a group, which lightens everyone up," says workplace psychologist Karissa Thacker. "Moving regularly is good for us in all kinds of ways, including improving our ability to focus."

Westchester County Business Journal: "Latino U guides first-gen students to college"

Westchester County Business Journal: "Latino U guides first-gen students to college"

. . . The program, which is supported through grants, corporate sponsors and the Westchester County Youth Bureau, has been recognized by the White House for its commitment to increasing Hispanic enrollment in the free application for federal student aid, or FAFSA. Latino U is also this year’s social enterprise in residence at Pace, which connects organizations with the academic community.

Clearing the path to higher education for Latino students is a job Shirley Acevedo Buontempo said she has spent her life preparing for because her story is much the same as many of her students in Latino U.

After leaving Puerto Rico with her family at 10 and moving to the Bronx, Acevedo Buontempo became the first in her family to attend college. She graduated from Pace University with a bachelor’s degree in business.

“I found the whole experience to be transformative, life-changing and impactful for me,” she said.

For the next 15 years, Acevedo Buontempo had jobs in Hispanic marketing and advertising as a brand manager and account executive with different companies, including the Font & Vaamonde division of Grey Advertising, Block Drug Company Inc., Bestfoods and Conill Advertising.

Acevedo Buontempo said she left the industry after having children, but eventually decided to go back to work, this time for a nonprofit — Katonah-based Community Center of Northern Westchester — where she became assistant director.

“It was that experience that really inspired me to dedicate myself to nonprofit as a second career path,” she said. “I wanted to give back to my community and be of service to my community as opposed to selling product.” To help do that, she went back to Pace for a master’s degree in public administration.

Around this time, in 2009, Acevedo Buontempo’s eldest daughter entered her senior year of high school. This was when Acevedo Buontempo became aware of the challenging college application process.

“The fact that I felt overwhelmed by it and here I was educated, bilingual with resources and I said, ‘This is not right,’” she said.

From there, Acevedo Buontempo researched and framed the nonprofit idea for her capstone project at Pace, which is how she uncovered the difficulties many first-generation Latino students face when it comes to SAT preparation, having college essays reviewed, filling out the applications for schools and funding.
