From a US Marine who came to Pace and graduated with a prestigious internship at the US Department of State in Azerbaijan and a Fulbright Award to teach English in Serbia, to a student DREAMer who was recently awarded a Truman Scholarship and plans to go to law school to become an immigration...

By Drew Levin, MaryEileen Croke/WNYC Radio, and Jonathan Lockwood Smith James Lipton, host of Inside the Actors Studio and Dean Emeritus of The Actors Studio Drama School at Pace University, sat down with President Marvin Krislov during his first 30 days to talk about some of the defining moments that set him on a path to Pace University. James Lipton: Let’s begin at the beginning. Where were you born? Marvin Krislov: I was born in Baltimore, but we moved to Lexington, Kentucky, when I was four years old. My father got a tenured job at the University of Kentucky in labor economics. JL: Were you a close family? MK: Very much so. There was my mother, father, and I, and then my grandmother joined us. My parents were both very interested in politics and social justice. My mother was an activist in Kentucky and at that time...
