October: President's Blog
In his latest blog posts, President Friedman gears up for his InsideTrack conversation with Kerry Kennedy and presents his welcome video to the Pace Community.
“My InsideTrack conversation with Kerry Kennedy, president of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, on October 6 takes place during the TECHO, Univision Poverty Awareness Week campaign, proudly co-hosted by Pace University. These events once again highlight the University’s role as a center of discussion and debate on the critical public policy issues of our time. As I prepare for these events, I can’t help but remember the day a photograph I was in made the front page of the New York Times—all courtesy of Senator Robert Kennedy, the war on poverty, and a five-year-old who answered a knock on his door.”
"The new semester and the 2015–2016 school year is in full swing. I hope by now you’ve had a chance to spend time in the new buildings and renovated spaces on both campuses. They are the most visible examples of the exciting renewal going on at Pace, but they are far from the only examples. If you haven’t already, please spend a few minutes with me as I highlight our progress on both campuses in this short video."
