Diversity and Inclusion

The Actors Studio Drama School (ASDS) is committed to transform the academic environment into a more equitable, inclusive and diverse community.

Whether related to accessibility, gender, ethnicity, age, or sexual orientation, it’s important to find deliberate ways to mature in our understanding and support of others. As our program grows and flourishes, The Actors Studio Drama School at Pace University is wholeheartedly dedicated to fostering an inclusive culture is a priority.

We truly believe as artists and as humans, it is our duty to identify as obvious and deliberate allies for all individuals, no matter their background. At ASDS we won’t settle for anything less than our students, faculty, and staff feeling supported to carry their whole selves to work.

We have made a commitment to choose diversity as the core of our Mission, Vision, and Values. We are unswerving in generating an all-encompassing educational experience that fully represents many different cultures, backgrounds, and viewpoints.

The world’s greatest creatives and artistic philosophies come from a diverse assortment of minds, backgrounds, and experiences, and we are dedicated to making sure all of our artists feel safe, seen, and appreciated
