In Memoriam - Fall 2019

Remembering Joseph Pastore Jr. ’66 Pace University mourns the loss of Professor Emeritus and former Provost and Lubin School of Business Dean Joseph Pastore Jr., PhD, ’66.

Mentoring Matters

When Pauline Mosley ’92, DPS ’02, arrived at her office during the first week of classes, a familiar face was waiting for her: a student who had attended the NSA- and NSF-funded Camp Cryptobot she runs at Pace for high school students. The camp, which was recently featured in The New Yorker, inspired the student to apply to Pace.

Yet, as Dyson Associate Professor ANTHONY MANCINI, PhD, has uncovered, the aftermath of that high-stress situation can often prove to be a different story. In fact, it can even strengthen and positively reinforce social bonds. “Along with my collaborators, I did a study on the Virginia Tech shootings, in which students happened to have their depression and anxiety...

Eradicating Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis (TB), an infectious disease which often attacks the lungs, has been wreaking havoc on humans and other animals for thousands of years. While its mortality rate has dropped significantly in developed countries, TB is still endemic in many underdeveloped countries throughout the world and remains one of the top 10 causes of death worldwide, killing 1.6 million people in 2017, according to the World Health Organization. Dyson Biology Professor MARCY KELLY, PhD, has dedicated much of...
Maral Javadifar

A Woman’s Place

By Alyssa Cressotti '08, '18 From the basketball court to the NFL sidelines, Maral Javadifar’s got game. Her maturity, her focus, and her determination to succeed was what originally made Maral Javadifar ’12 stand out to the Pace University Athletics Department. Javadifar, still in high school and just a prospective student-athlete for the Pace Women’s Basketball team, was recovering from what could have been a career-ending torn ACL when she was recruited by Coach Carrie Seymour and Assistant Coach Patrina Blow. Amid her own concerns that she wouldn’t be able to play basketball at the...
