University Policies

Management of the University is vested exclusively in the University. Except as otherwise provided in the Collective Bargaining Agreement between Pace University and the Union of Adjunct Faculty at Pace, adjunct faculty members and part-time instructors are subject to all University policies, procedures, rules and regulations. 

Sexual Assault

Sexual assault is a very serious concern to the Pace University community. It is the policy of Pace University to provide a safe environment, one that is free from violence, for every member of its community. Accordingly, the University prohibits and does not tolerate acts of violence that occur on University owned or controlled premises or at University-sponsored off-campus programs or events. 

The University is also strongly committed to maintaining a working and learning environment that is free from Unlawful Discrimination, Harassment or Retaliation. Link to Discrimination, Non Sex-Based Harassment and Retaliation Policy. 
 
Adjunct faculty who have witnessed or learned of conduct prohibited by the Discrimination, Non-Sex Based Harassment Policy and Procedure are strongly encouraged to promptly report such incident(s) to the persons identified in the Complaint Procedure set forth in the policy.

Pace University is strongly committed to this issue and strictly enforces its Sex-Based Misconduct Policy and Procedure, which has been strengthened, updated, and enhanced with the help of faculty, staff, and students, and outside experts and organizations. 

If any adjunct faculty members or part-time instructors become aware of an occurrence of Sex-Based Misconduct (defined per the policy), they are required to report that information  to the Title IX Coordinator/Affirmative Action Officer Aletha (Lisa) Miles. She can be contacted at (212) 346-1310 or at amiles@pace.edu

Hate/Bias-Related Crimes

The New York State Legislature found and determined that “criminal acts involving violence, intimidation, and destruction of property based upon bias and prejudice have become more prevalent in New York State in recent years.”

Pace University’s Guiding Principles of Conduct clearly and unequivocally states that “membership in the University community is accompanied by the responsibility to maintain and foster an environment characterized by freedom of expression, inquiry and exchange of ideas and respect for the dignity and uniqueness of each individual.” In addition, the University has established standards of behavior to ensure the safety of all members of the University community.

The Pleasantville office is directed by specialist Erin Doolin, who has a Masters in Higher Education with extensive experience working with college and graduate students on issues related to mental health, sexual assault, and interpersonal violence.

Safety and Security

Campus Preparedness and Emergency Planning

In an effort to keep our students, staff, and faculty safe and informed, Pace University has a plan to help you prepare for or deal with a variety of emergency situations.

Pace University is required by federal law to publish an annual security report containing information with respect to campus security policies and statistics on the incidence of certain crimes on and around our campuses. This information is available on the Safety & Security Department Web site.

Emergency Response Plan
The purpose of the Pace University Emergency Response plan is to establish policies, procedures and an organizational structure for response to emergencies. The plan contains clear strategies and the roles played by various departments (Safety and Security, Buildings and Grounds, Health Care Unit, Residential Life, SARS, Laboratories, etc.) during the initial response and throughout the emergency. Nothing in this plan shall be construed in a manner that limits the use of good judgment and common sense in matters not foreseen or covered by the elements of the plan. The plan and organization shall be subordinate to State and Federal plans during a disaster declaration by those authorities.

Safety and Security
Through the employment of a professional in-house security staff with many years of law enforcement and private security experience and through the use of a top-notch uniform security guard company, Safety and Security are on hand 24 hours a day to provide professional support and security services. An electronic security system, which includes closed circuit television cameras, intrusion alarms, card access readers and an emergency communication system has been developed. In addition, a Security Awareness Program has also been developed. Safety and Security Policy Statement (PDF).

Parking

Pleasantville Parking: All vehicles brought on campus must be registered with the University. To obtain an annual parking decal, current vehicle registration and a valid Pace I.D. must be presented to Security. Special permits are available for individuals with unique needs or disabilities. Parking is permitted in designated areas only and prohibited in crosswalks, fire lanes, bus stops, unpaved areas, spaces reserved for the disabled and other areas designated as no parking areas. Pace University assumes no responsibility for theft or damage to any vehicle.

Pace does not offer on campus parking on the NYC Campus. Due to traffic congestion and construction we encourage attendees to use mass transit. If that's not an option, search for nearby parking lots, prices, and even make reservations at some lots: nyc.bestparking.com/.
