Pace Magazine focuses on faculty

News Story

New and longtime faculty members offer their perspectives on how the University is changing with the times, while mindful of its rich traditions.

Observing that, “An exemplary faculty has always been at the heart of the Pace experience, and never more so than today,” the new, fall issue of Pace Magazine takes faculty as its theme, with profiles of six new faculty members and a nostalgic remembrance by a 50-year veteran.

The 50-year vet is Professor Nick Catalano, PhD, who came to the University (then still a college) in 1964 and moved to the new Pleasantville location the following year.

“Imagine having a job for 50 years and enjoying it just as much now as when you started,” he writes. “Such has been my experience teaching literature and music at Pace.”

The new faculty members profiled in the magazine are:

  • Gerald Ardito, DPS, Assistant Professor of STEM-D Education, School of Education
  • Philip G. Cohen, Associate Professor of Taxation, Lubin School of Business (a longtime adjunct who recently joined the full-time faculty)
  • Jason Czarnezki, Gilbert and Sarah Kerlin Distinguished Professor of Environmental Law and Executive Director of Environmental Law Programs, Pace Law School
  • Angela M. Legg, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Dyson College of Arts and Sciences
  • Juan Shan, PhD, Assistant Professor of Computer Science, Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems
  • Kyeongra Yang, PhD, RN, Assistant Professor, Lienhard School of Nursing, College of Health Professions

“These two features encapsulate a renewing, evolving University that is as focused on its future as it is proud of its past,” Pace President Steven J. Friedman notes in his introductory letter to the magazine, adding that, “The professors you’ll meet in this issue of Pace Magazine are just a few of the 140 new faculty members to join our ranks in the last five years.”
