The Value of a College Degree

The value of an undergraduate degree has emerged as a hot-button issue over the course of the 21st century. While research indicating that an increase in earning potential and career advancement opportunities for college graduates is clear, a changing economy and increased costs has put higher education under a sharper microscope. To put it bluntly: is college worth it? Lubin Professor Larry Chiagouris, PhD, is seeking answers from those with the freshest, and arguably, most relevant...

Must Love Dogs

By Lance Pauker On a misty Saturday morning in February, College of Health Professions (CHP) Professor of Nursing Joanne Singleton, PhD;  Pace’s service dog, Professor Spirit; and 25 CHP undergraduate students boarded a bus departing from Pace’s Pleasantville Campus. With coffees in hand, many students noted that while this 8:00 a.m. call-time was a departure from their traditional weekend sleep schedules, today was an exciting, special exception. The group was gearing up for a field visit to Educated Canines... The field trip to ECAD would be about a lot more than just playing with cute animals—although it would be a little bit of that, of course. As the bus trudged down a foggy I-84E, Singleton began to discuss why an individual with a disability or a degenerative condition might benefit from a service dog—and from the perspective of a health care practitioner, the importance of adequately understanding the needs of individuals with service animals.

Women in STEM: They're Setting the Pace

By Jillian Gorry ’11, ’21 These Pace women in STEM are rockin’ it in the labs, in the field, and in the industry. They’re collaborating across disciplines and pushing the limits on cutting-edge research—not to mention, they’re helping young women follow in their footsteps. Quick! Picture a scientist in a lab. Now, picture a web developer. Next, picture a researcher.  Pop quiz: were the people you pictured men? If you said yes, you wouldn’t be alone. And don’t worry, we won’t hold it against you. We promise. These stereotypes, while pervasive, are far from the reality—especially at Pace. STEM (read: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields are social fields. Across industries, STEM fields comprise a deeply...

School Ties

By Alyssa Cressotti ’08, ’18 Many of us claim we’ll “keep in touch” after graduating, not entirely sure if it will really happen. For these Setters, however, keeping in touch isn’t simply a social nicety—it’s a major component of their lives, and by reconnecting in style, they’ve continued to reinforce and strengthen lasting bonds first made during their college years. Meet a few alumni who, through trips, rituals, and serendipitous run-ins, have extended their collegiality well beyond graduation.  Girls Trip “I had never been to Jamaica, and our friend—who was from there—asked if I wanted to come along and I said yes,” recalls Gina Caro ’96. “And then, before you knew it, all five of us were going to Jamaica.” For Caro and fellow Pace alumnae Raquel Muñoz ’95,  Nicole Phillips-Moody ’96, Diana Reyna ’96, and Nadine Wallace  ’96, this first trip was the start of something magical. “That first trip, we were just out of college, and we were in a suite, but jam-...

Telling Our Own Stories

Diversity, equity, and inclusion in media and the performing arts is something that’s been talked about for years, and while we’ve seen an increase in diversity in the arts more recently with blockbusters like Black Panther, Crazy Rich Asians, and Broadway’s Hamilton beginning to change the landscape, there’s still a long way to go and a whole lot more work to do. This summer, Pace University announced the launch of a new program, “Writing for Diversity and Equity in Theater and Media Arts...
