I Make It Happen

The Service Standards Initiative is designed to establish and sustain a culture that ensures positive and quality student interactions with Pace administrative offices, and thus continuously improving the overall student experience throughout the University. The program focuses on key customer service standard values such as accessible, respectful, professional, accountable and proactive; applicable to both departments and individuals. Together, we make it happen.
