We Need Diverse Academia

For the first time in University history, a group of Pace students, faculty, staff, and alumni have been gathering virtually for the Presidential Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion. The members of this task force were elected by their respective governing bodies and appointed by leadership across the University to examine and improve the Pace experience for all—especially those from historically underrepresented communities.

Led by Tiffany Hamilton, who heads up the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as Pace’s first chief diversity officer, members of the task force are identifying processes and actions that will actively promote diversity, equity, an inclusive environment, and shared responsibility and accountability. And the entire Pace Community is now getting involved.

Students, faculty, and staff were recently asked to complete a survey to share their unique experiences at the University via a 100% anonymous form. Everyone’s voice is absolutely vital to this work, and through all our efforts, Pace is set to become a more vibrant space of belonging for all.
