Welcome to 2019!

News Story

President Krislov discusses recent exciting developments on campus, and previews what lies ahead for what’s shaping up to be a great year for Pace.

Welcome back!

To all of our returning students: I hope you had a wonderful break. To new students arriving for spring semester: welcome to Pace! To everybody: I hope you’re connecting with your academic advisers, attending events, signing up for activities. I want you to have a busy and productive spring semester.

The big news as we start this semester is some of the biggest news to hit this University in a little while. Last Monday morning, we officially opened the transformed spaces at One Pace Plaza and 41 Park Row. Everyone who has seen the renovations has been, like me, overwhelmed by just how great everything looks. We’ve added new, high-tech learning facilities and great new student spaces. We tore down concrete walls and replaced them with glass ones, to open Pace up to New York City. A Pace education is all about connecting you with real-world opportunities in the greatest metropolitan area in the world, and I love that we’re now making that relationship so apparent by opening views from our buildings out on City Hall and the Brooklyn Bridge—and by allowing our neighbors to look in on us.

This big undertaking, coming just after the amazing transformation of our Pleasantville campus, is a powerful symbol of Pace’s commitment to our students and our future. All of us who work here—the faculty, the staff, those of us in administration—we’re all here to help you succeed. At Pace, we transform lives, and we want to give you the great education that will launch you into successful careers. All these new facilities will make your Pace experience even better, and your opportunities even greater.

On February 25, I’ll be giving my first-ever State of the University address, talking in more detail about what we’re doing to push Pace forward and serve our students even better. I’ll speak on all three campuses, with a livestream available to let you catch me at a different time if you can’t make the speech on your campus. We’ll be providing more information about that soon. I hope I’ll see you there, and I hope you’ll come prepared for questions.

In the meantime, have a wonderful semester. I look forward to seeing you soon, whether in the new student center, or in 41 Park Row, or cheering on the Setters at Goldstein, or anywhere else around the campuses.

Stay warm!
