Remembering 9/11

News Story

Come together with the Pace Community to remember, reflect, and honor those we lost at events being held on both campuses:

Sixteen years ago, the tragic events of 9/11 were not only felt around the world, but also at our University, located just blocks away from the World Trade Center—where our nation and our community were forever changed within a matter of hours. The Pace Community heavily mourned the loss of 47 members, and was closed for several weeks as the city and the country worked toward a brighter tomorrow.

Here's where you can remember, honor, and reflect:
