Mission and Vision

Our Mission

The mission of International Special Programs at Pace University is to provide high-quality custom English language and content-based educational experiences for special groups, organizations, institutions, and grant-funded programs. We strive to create a diverse and inclusive community of learners who are prepared to navigate the complexities of the world and become global citizens.

To achieve this mission, we partner with Pace University departments to design and deliver innovative programming that offers our students a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to global learning. We also offer essential services and support for customized, non-traditional programs that help Pace schools and external partners achieve their goals.

Our Vision

Our vision for International Special Programs at Pace University is to be a leader in global education and a successful, self-supporting department that is an integral part of Pace University's centralized international strategy.

We aim to create a vibrant and dynamic learning environment that fosters intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and a deep appreciation for cultural diversity. To achieve this vision, we provide dynamic, market-driven programs and experiences that have a high degree of satisfaction and encourage students to pursue additional experiences at Pace.

Our goal is to be recognized as the go-to department by Pace schools to assist in offering customized, non-traditional programming that spans multiple disciplines and meets specific needs.

Additionally, we aim to attain global reach through intentional marketing and recruitment efforts, constantly expanding to new markets. Through our efforts, we strive to inspire our students to become global citizens who can address the complex challenges of the world and make a positive impact in their communities and beyond.
