Punctuated by its Weekend Seminar each autumn and Annual Meeting each spring, the Dyson College Society of Fellows is the college’s premier honors organization. The Society connects Dyson alumni, faculty, and students for robust dialogue and the exploration of intellectual and artistic curiosities, as Fellows engage in seminars and workshops across disciplines and students present faculty-mentored research.

Located at 41 Park Row on the New York City campus, Dyson is home to the world-class Pace University Art Gallery, which showcases pieces across media from Pace students and art faculty, as well as esteemed local and international artists. The gallery is open to the public and features rotating thought-provoking curated exhibits – with past showcases ranging from work centered around social justice, to pieces created from unexpected materials such as ground corn and mushroom-based plastics, to artwork from employees of the New York City sanitation department.

The Center for Community Action and Research (CCAR) is the cornerstone of civic engagement at Pace University. The CCAR partners with community organizations and delivers programming encouraging students, faculty, and staff to engage in efforts of volunteerism, political involvement, advocacy, and leadership.

The International Disarmament Institute is an academic center focused on global disarmament, arms control, and non-proliferation policy research and education. Located near the United Nations Headquarters in New York City, it addresses various challenges related to weapons of mass destruction, conventional arms, armed violence, the arms trade, emerging weapons technology, and militarization.

With the aim of educating the community about the protection of human and natural resources, the Dyson College Institute for Sustainability and the Environment (DCISE) is housed in the Dyson College Nature Center on the Pleasantville campus. DCISE provides training and research, utilizing Pace’s physical and intellectual resources, to advance environmental information and advocate for the development of healthy and diverse communities in the Hudson Valley and Greater New York City regions.

Dyson Artists-in-Residence (DAR) is a vibrant Living-Learning Community in Alumni Hall on the Pleasantville campus, made up of a diverse group of students living together in the residence hall, studying in designated DAR courses and seminars, pursuing community service projects, and building lifelong friendships. DAR courses, led by a live-in faculty member, support Dyson’s mission to provide hands-on, immersive learning experiences that go beyond the traditional classroom model, allowing students to learn new skills and make lasting memories.

From groups centered around academic interests, to personal development, to civic engagement and activism, Pace University’s more than 100 student organizations will enhance your educational experience as you explore your passions and prepare for life after Pace.
