Patch featured the Pace Art Gallery launch of its Substance exhibition in "Pace University Art Gallery Launches 'Substance'"

Pace University Art Gallery has launched the Substance exhibition and associated programs that include online artists' talks, an artist residency, and a virtual exhibit – all culminating with an in-person exhibit in the fall 2021, the University announced today.

Substance brings together five abstract artists—Diego Anaya, Liz Atz, Linda Ekstrom, Adebunmi Gbadebo, and Alberto Lule—who express meaning via their materials rather than through representational imagery.

To celebrate the launch of the digital exhibit, at 6:30 p.m. on March 1, the Gallery will host a Zoom artist talk by Diego Anaya. Anaya's work is minimalist in imagery, yet he celebrates his Mexican heritage through the use of ground corn, corn ash, and sand with which he creates rough and uneven surfaces. The texture compels the viewer to examine the work closely and even to want to touch and smell the granular surface, creating an immediate and intimate connection between the viewer and the artist.

Patch featured Pace University in "Pace & UCLA Partner to Explore Digital Mapping in Latinx Studies"

The neighborhood surrounding Pace University's Lower Manhattan campus was once home to a thriving Spanish-language publishing community that—like many such publishing centers located throughout the United States in the nineteenth century—has largely been forgotten. Associate Professor of English Kelley Kreitz, PhD, also an affiliate faculty member in Latinx Studies, has been working to recover that history with her students. 

In partnership with Marissa López, professor of English and Chicana/o Studies at UCLA, Kreitz has been awarded $50,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Office of Digital Humanities to continue and expand this groundbreaking work along with Latinx Studies scholars working on similar projects across the country.

"Professor Kreitz has been on the forefront of this fascinating new field of digital humanities, bringing her expertise into the classroom for Pace University students," said Tresmaine Grimes, PhD, dean, Dyson College of Arts and Sciences and School of Education at Pace University. "Her participation as a co-director in this prestigious grant is a testament to her innovative scholarship in this field."

The Lubin School of Business at Pace University has successfully maintained its dual accreditation for both business and accounting by AACSB International, the University today announced.

Lubin's dual accreditation by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business is an elite distinction shared by fewer than 2 percent of business schools in the world offering business degree programs.

"Pace University has a steadfast commitment to providing our students with the tools they'll need to succeed in their careers after graduation," said Pace President Marvin Krislov. "I'm proud that the Lubin School of Business will maintain its dual AACSB accreditation, and I know we'll continue our long tradition of creating opportunities for ambitious, hard-working business and accounting students."

Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting. AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business and accounting education. There are currently 882 business institutions in 57 countries and territories that have earned AACSB Accreditation. Similarly, 189 institutions hold a supplemental, specialized AACSB Accreditation for their accounting programs.

"Earning the distinction of dual AACSB accreditation reflects a business institution's commitment to the highest standards of excellence," said Lawrence G. Singleton, dean of the Lubin School of Business. "We thoroughly enjoyed working with our strong peer review team and appreciate the helpful feedback they provided throughout the process. Lubin's focus on student success, career preparation, and innovative programs and practices were important components for re-accreditation success."

Patch featured Pace University's 2020 Design Award for its Student Landscape of Pace's New York City Campus in "Pace University's New Student-Centered Space Wins Design Award"

Patch featured Pace University's 2020 Design Award for its Student Landscape of Pace's New York City Campus in "Pace University's New Student-Centered Space Wins Design Award"

The American Institute of Architects New York State (AIANYS) has awarded Pace University and FXCollaborative a 2020 Design Award for its Student Landscape, in recognition of the dramatic transformation of Pace's New York City Campus. FXCollaborative, Pace's partner in developing the University's ongoing New York City Master Plan, received a Design Award of Merit in the Interiors Category.

"We were fortunate to partner with FXCollaborative, and we are honored to be recognized by the AIA New York State," said Pace University President Marvin Krislov. "Pace has been part of the lower Manhattan community for more than 100 years, and we're proud of our long commitment to helping students to transform their lives through the power of education. Our beautifully transformed spaces in One Pace Plaza and the historic 41 Park Row help us bring that legacy into the 21 century while connecting us to our downtown neighbors."

The award specifically highlights the recent interior renovations of One Pace Plaza, the University's signature building on its Lower Manhattan Campus, and 41 Park Row, a New York City landmarked building and former headquarters of the New York Times. The AIANYS jury noted that the extensive upgrades in One Pace Plaza – ranging from a vibrant new courtyard to a vast array of new student and faculty spaces – have improved circulation, function, flexibility, and have considered the building's unique structural conditions to create a "dramatic improvement to the student and faculty experience."

Located at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge and directly across from City Hall Park, the newly transformed One Pace Plaza further opens the University to an increasingly dynamic area of Manhattan, strategically positioning itself – and its current and future students – for success in the 21st century.

Additionally, 41 Park Row, built in 1889, further expands Pace's modern footprint and brand identity. Among the updates in 41 Park Row include a new home for the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, a public art gallery for student work, student commons, offices, and faculty space.
