Welcome, Tiffany Hamilton
Tiffany Hamilton has been named Pace’s first-ever Chief Diversity Officer. We are excited to welcome her to campus.
Living up to its longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion, President Marvin Krislov has named Tiffany Hamilton as Pace University’s first Chief Diversity Officer.
“The appointment of a Chief Diversity Officer is the next logical step in formalizing what we already do so well here at Pace University,” said Krislov. “As the nation’s number one four-year private university for driving social mobility, we recognize that a diverse academic community makes for a stronger academic community. I know that Tiffany Hamilton will carry on this work and ensure a welcoming environment for everyone here at Pace.”
Hamilton, a Stamford, Connecticut, resident and former Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Westchester Community College, will supervise the Affirmative Action Office and Title IX Coordinator, the LGBTQA+ and Social Justice Center, the Multicultural Affairs offices, and the Offices of Sexual Assault Prevention and Education. Working with Enrollment Management, Student Affairs, Human Resources, and other departments at its New York City and Pleasantville campuses, Hamilton will also ensure that Pace University implements best practices for recruitment and retention of students, faculty, and staff.
“Pace University has a long record of working to improve diversity and create opportunities for underrepresented students,” said Hamilton. “As a first-generation college student myself, I recognize the leadership role Pace has taken, and I’m honored to have been chosen to build on this strong foundation.”
