Letter to Alumni

Greetings, Lubin Alumni:

Remember, life at Pace does not end when you graduate: it continues and thrives.

Since graduating from the Lubin School of Business at Pace University in 1989 with an MBA in Financial Management and Marketing Management, I have remained quite active at the school. I have recently been re-elected President of the Lubin School of Business Alumni Association Board of Directors after previously serving some 8 years ago. I have been on the Lubin Board for over twenty years and have enjoyed every moment of serving on this wonderful Board. I can assure you unequivocally that the rewards of making a commitment to Pace have been both exciting and valuable.

The Lubin School of Business Alumni Association Board of Directors represents a major segment of the School's over 139,000 alumni population at Pace. Our Board's primary objective is to advance the mission of the university, "Opportunitas," and to promote stronger relationships among the Lubin Alumni population. We Board Directors serve as advocates for Pace and the Pace alumni family, and we work to provide an infrastructure that facilitates meaningful relationships between the University and its alumni. My primary objective for this year as President of the Lubin Alumni Association is increased engagement. Our Board wants to keep alumni excited and motivated so that they will be more active in participating in Pace and Lubin events such as Homecoming, Reunion, the Holiday Party, and student events. You can find upcoming events on the Alumni Events Calendar.

You might be interested to know just what our Lubin Alumni Board does:

We meet several times a year to plan programs and discuss ways we can further cultivate participation in the life and growth of the University. In fact, during the last several years, we have sponsored numerous professional and educational events, receptions, and social events for informal socializing and networking, as well as attending numerous student club activities. The response to our past events has been extremely positive and we are pleased to provide opportunities such as these to bring alumni of the School together.

Our Alumni Board Directors have not only spoken at various lectures and continuing education seminars, but we also represent the Lubin School alumni on various other volunteer committees.

We serve as mentors to students and are actively involved in mentoring incoming freshmen, as well as upperclassmen, ensuring that their Pace experience continues through graduation.

We thoroughly encourage alumni to contribute to social media posts on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and elsewhere through adding their pictures, posting when they attend or have attended a University sponsored event, and sharing University news. The following are excellent places to link to the main alumni social media outlets:

Please consider volunteering as a mentor, speaker, or attendee at student events by contacting the Office of Alumni Relations for more information. In addition, we welcome alumni participation on one of our Lubin committees, including Conversion & Retention, Community Service, Student Relations, Communications, and Events. We hope that you will be encouraged to join our Board by filling out an application form. The Lubin Alumni Association Nominating Committee entertains directorships on a yearly basis by invitation.

Finally, and most importantly, we ask that you contribute to the Pace Annual Fund and designate your gift to the Lubin School of Business. U.S. News and World Report heavily considers alumni contributions in its ranking of universities. You will not only make a difference by your contribution, but you will also help to increase the value of your Pace degree. Please remember that it is not the amount that you give, but that you give.

In any case, wherever you go in the world, you always have a place at Pace. On behalf of the Lubin Alumni Association Board, we look forward to seeing you on campus.

Susan B. Lubalin
President of the Lubin Alumni Association Board of Directors
