Press Release: Pace University Students, Faculty and Staff to Convene for Inaugural Social Justice Week Across All Campuses

Honors the Memory of DJ Henry with Education and Empowerment

WESTCHESTER and NEW YORK (Oct. 16, 2020) – To educate and empower the Pace Community on topics connected to social and racial justice, inclusion and equality while honoring the memory of former student Danroy “DJ” Henry Jr., who was killed by a police officer 10 years ago, Pace University will host the inaugural Social Justice Week, the University today announced.

The week-long series runs from Oct. 26 to Oct. 30 and includes social justice-centered programming consisting of nearly 50 events created by students, faculty, staff and alumni. Pace University is committed to being an anti-racist institution and Social Justice Week supports education, empowerment and passion. Events are free and some are open to the public.

“This October marks 10 years since the tragic death of DJ Henry, a promising young Pace student and football player,” said Marvin Krislov, Pace’s president. “As we reflect on his life, I am pleased that our campus community is choosing to celebrate DJ’s legacy with this Social Justice Week series of programming. I hope this annual event will serve as a recommitment to work toward our goals of equality and other positive change.”

The week will kick off with an overview of how Pace students are leading the charge on advocacy and making a difference on campus and in their communities. Other highlights include a conversation with the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement; a discussion with the president of the National Urban League; presentations about topics such as diversity in the workforce, the gender gap in the technology field, and a conversation with a death row exoneree, among many others topics.

Many of the events are centered on the tragic death of DJ Henry, a Pace University football player who was shot and killed by a police officer in 2010. On Oct. 26, there will be a screening and discussion of the 48 Hours segment, “The Story of DJ Henry.” The MFA program will be hosting “Poems in Power” in partnership with the Henry Family.  There will also be a campus rally on Oct. 29—DJ Henry’s birthday (he would have been 31) and Pace University Athletics will retire his No. 12 football jersey. To learn more about his story, you can watch the video by the DJ Henry Dream Fund, the foundation established by DJ Henry’s parents.

“We created Social Justice Week to highlight the importance of social justice and to acknowledge the circumstances of DJ Henry’s murder,” said Pace student Ashley DeSalvo, a student organizer and ambassador of Unity and Social Justice with Pace’s Student Government Association. “Issues of social justice affect all of us. There is not enough time in one week to cover all of the moving pieces that influence our lives, but we hope that the events and activities of this week spark interest and passion that will encourage students to continue this work.”

Suede Graham, coordinator for Student Development and Campus Activities at Pace University noted that planning such a series of events was empowering as students, faculty and staff came together for something that was much bigger than themselves. “The students here are so passionate about diversity, equity, and inclusion, and they are doing an excellent job of holding the university accountable in their passion,” said Graham. “I found myself nearly getting emotional reading through the submissions because I realize the levels of empathy individuals within our community hold.”

The full schedule of events is below or can be viewed here.

Press Release: Photographer AJ Stetson Captures the Moment with Portraits of Masked New Yorkers

Press Release: Photographer AJ Stetson Captures the Moment with Portraits of Masked New Yorkers

NEW YORK (October 13, 2020) —Pace University to house a pop-up exhibition of Masked NYC: Witness to Our Time by AJ Stetson. Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic and many protests supporting racial justice, Stetson has created portraits of fellow New Yorkers wearing their masks, often at Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ+ rallies. More than two dozen four-foot vinyl panels, drawn from more than 850 photographs taken, will be displayed for street-level, window viewing during daylight hours from October 13-25, 2020 at the gallery’s 41 Park Row location in Lower Manhattan.

After recovering from Covid-19 himself and withstanding a 25-day quarantine, Stetson began by capturing portraits of his masked housemates. Finally able to leave the house, he rediscovered New York City by bicycling through the boroughs, photographing friends and the larger community of masked New Yorkers. Then, on May 25, after coronavirus had stopped the breath of so many worldwide, Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee to the neck of George Floyd, stopping his breath and killing him. As New Yorkers rallied for racial justice, Stetson joined the protests and continued to document his neighbors, each expressing community care and individuality with their masks. In all cases, he asked for permission before photographing each subject and used a telephoto lens to remain socially distanced.

This exhibition was first displayed on the fence of the historic Quaker Meeting House on East 15th Street in Manhattan in September 2020. Future exhibitions have been confirmed for the Urban Justice Center and the Fourth Universalist Society. Profits from this project will be donated to the Know Your Rights Camp COVID-19 Relief Fund, founded by Colin Kaepernick to help address the pandemic’s disproportionate effect on communities of color.

For additional information, please contact Sarah Cunningham, Pace University Art Gallery Director, at scunningham@pace.edu or 212-346-1733.

About the Artist

A longtime New Yorker, AJ Stetson has been photographing since a childhood encounter with a crocodile. His fascination with what he calls the “beauty of the miraculous and the mundane” has led him high and low, making both underwater and aerial photographs and videos on five continents. Subjects have ranged from sea lions in La Paz to the night skies on the Great Barrier Reef. Recent work also includes his fascination with bodies in motion that comprises Cirque du Soleil performers, ballet dancers, and athletes. He is a native of Rhode Island, a dual citizen of the U.S. and Italy, and a magna cum laude graduate of Williams College.

Press Release: Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University Confers 2019-2020 Elisabeth Haub Award for Environmental Law and Diplomacy on Environmental Defenders

10/07/2020

Press Release: Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University Confers 2019-2020 Elisabeth Haub Award for Environmental Law and Diplomacy on Environmental Defenders

Award given in memoriam to recognize those around the world who have lost their lives protecting the environment

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (October 7, 2020) – The Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University will confer the 2019-2020 Elisabeth Haub Award for Environmental Law and Diplomacy in memoriam on environmental defenders who have lost their lives defending their land and the environment from destructive industries.

The award ceremony will be held online via Zoom from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm (EDT) on Monday, October 12—Indigenous Peoples’ Day. The ceremony will be preceded by a panel discussion featuring distinguished environmental advocates and activists. Register here.

The number of attacks against environmental defenders continues to rise, with 212 killings documented by Global Witness in 2019. Some 30 environmental defenders were killed in the Philippines alone, and more than half of all murders took place in Latin America. The world over, indigenous peoples bear the brunt of these killings and other attacks.

“The Elisabeth Haub School of Law is proud that our top-ranked environmental law program trains lawyers to understand the intersection between human rights, the environment and the law,” said Haub Law Dean Horace Anderson. “We are honored this year to shine a light on those who have lost their lives defending their land and the environment.”    

Increasingly, laws and policies are being adopted that are likely to make it harder for citizens to take a stand against destructive projects by increasing the associated risks. “To protect environmental defenders, we need to strengthen the environmental rule of law around the globe and break unsustainable consumption patterns that fuel violations of human rights,” said Katrina Kuh, Interim Associate Dean and Executive Director, Environmental Law Programs and Haub Distinguished Professor of Environmental Law. “We are indebted to environmental defenders and they deserve our recognition and support.”

“The Elisabeth Haub Award for Environmental Law and Diplomacy recognizes the innovation, skill, and accomplishments of lawyers, diplomats, international civil servants and other advocates who work to create the world environmental order,” said Liliane A. Haub, environmental advocate and Pace University Trustee. “It is our hope that by honoring environmental defenders with this Award, we are making a statement in support of those individuals and communities who are fighting and dying to create a more sustainable planet.”

The distinguished discussion panel for the 2019-2020 Elisabeth Haub Award for Environmental Law and Diplomacy comprises the following individuals, in order of appearance: 

*Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, Executive Director of the Tebtebba Foundation and former United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

*Robert Chan, Executive Director, Palawan NGO Network, Inc. (PNNI), Philippines

*Carlos Alfonso Negret, former Ombudsman, Republic of Colombia

*Krystal Two Bulls, Northern Cheyenne/Oglala Lakota Director, LANDBACK Campaign, NDN Collective

*Julie Anne Miranda-Brobeck, Head of U.S. Communications & Global Partnerships, Global Witness.

Each year, a jury comprising eminent leaders in the field of environmental law and diplomacy solicits nominations and selects the recipient of the Award. More information about the Elisabeth Haub Award for Environmental Law and Diplomacy.

Press Release: Pace Student Wins Jefferson Award

Press Release: Pace Student Wins Jefferson Award

National Award Honors Ordinary Citizens Doing Extraordinary Acts of Public Service

PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. – September 25, 2020 -- A Pace University nursing student who founded an international first responder organization in the aftermath of the devastating earthquakes in Haiti has won a 2020 Jefferson Award, a prestigious national honor that recognizes America’s top change makers and ordinary citizens who are doing extraordinary acts of public service.

In selecting Jacqueline Cassagnol for a National Award for Outstanding Public Service, Multiplying Good, the nonprofit organization that administers the Awards, cited the Rockland County resident’s on-the-ground life-saving volunteer work in Haiti and her subsequent creation of Worldwide Community First Responder, Inc., which provides health education, first-aid and disaster preparedness training to people in the United States and Haiti. Since the organization was established in 2011, it has educated and trained more than 350,000 community members in critical life-saving skills.

Cassagnol, a doctoral candidate in nursing at Pace’s College of Health Professions, is the first student from Pace to earn the national honor, and the third member of the Pace community. She joins an impressive list of people who have earned an award that is often considered the “Nobel Prize for Public Service.” This year’s other national winners include actress and activist Kristen Bell, Youth Villages CEO Patrick Lawler, and TOMS clothing brand.

A virtual ceremony was held Thursday evening and can be viewed here.

“I couldn't be prouder of Jacqueline Cassagnol’s many accomplishments, now including becoming Pace University's first-ever student national Jefferson Award winner,” said Pace President Marvin Krislov. “Pace students are committed to serving our community, and Jacqueline embodies that. I'm impressed and inspired by her leadership, hard work, and dedication. She is truly deserving of this great honor.”

Over the past four decades, the list of Jefferson Award recipients has included hundreds of national figures — both public and private —more than 63,000 unsung heroes, and tens of thousands of employees and young people that represent the good that is happening in communities across the country. The list of winners includes an impressive who’s who of cultural icons, political dignitaries and everyday community members and volunteers.

“For nearly 50 years, we’ve used recognition to inspire everyone to find a way to serve others,” explained Hillary Schafer, CEO of Multiplying Good. “By celebrating service on a national stage, we elevate the spirit of America, the resiliency of its people, and the good that is all around us.”

“Jefferson Award recipients represent the highest level of service to others,” Schafer continued. “By telling their stories, we encourage them to do even more and inspire others to make a difference through service.”

The Jefferson Awards is the nation’s largest and longest-running awards ceremony honoring public service. The Awards, which are traditionally held twice a year at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., were entirely online this year. It was presented as a one-hour streaming video and aired a collection of inspiring stories that celebrate unparalleled service to others. It also included special recognition of One in a Million awards campaign winners who've had a positive impact through service in the face of crises. 

Pace University, a champion of the Jefferson Awards since 2008, also held a virtual viewing party that included staff, students and faculty. Cassagnol was among 12 local bronze award winners and was chosen to represent Pace at the virtual awards ceremony.

In addition to winning a national Jefferson Award, Cassagnol has earned many other honors for her work. She was named “Nurse of the Year” by the March of Dimes at its Fifth Annual gala in New York; designated a “Rising Star” by the Rockland Economic Development Corporation at its Annual Forty Under 40 Reception in 2014; presented with the Safe Community Award by Volunteer New York; and inducted into the New York Academy of Medicine in November 2018. In 2019, the New York Yankees named Jacqueline a “Nurse Hero,” and she won the Haitian American Young Citizen of the Year Award from the U.S. Haitian Chamber of Commerce.

In her acceptance remarks, Cassagnol congratulated her peers and noted that it was a great honor to represent Pace University at the Awards.

“I am so grateful to Pace University and Multiplying Good for recognizing extraordinary public service,” Cassagnol said. “Congratulations to all of the recipients of this prestigious award tonight. Your contributions, your sacrifices, your collective enthusiasm clearly are making a significant difference. You are all leaders, highly deserving of the recognition you have received.”

Dr. Harriet R. Feldman, dean of the College of Health Professions and the Lienhard School of Nursing at Pace University, and past Jefferson Award recipient, said Cassagnol was an inspiration and example for others.

“I applaud our student Jacqueline Cassagnol on this extraordinary honor,” Dean Feldman said. “Her dedication to the well-being of local, regional and global communities will surely inspire others in the Pace Community and beyond about the importance of service. We are very proud of her!”

Press Release: GOV. CUOMO SIGNS PACE UNIVERSITY’S ENDANGERED SPECIES BILL

09/24/2020

Press Release: GOV. CUOMO SIGNS PACE UNIVERSITY’S ENDANGERED SPECIES BILL

Environmental Policy Clinic Sought Stronger Protections from Weakened Federal Law

PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. – (September 24, 2020) -- Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has signed into law a bill increasing New York State’s powers to protect endangered species from the threat of federal policies that weaken protections. The bill was based on research conducted by student clinicians in Pace University’s Environmental Policy Clinic.

Alumna Allie Granger ‘19, as a student, found a loophole in the five-decade old state law that would allow the U.S. Department of the Interior to remove any species its designation had automatically placed on the New York State list, even if the state believed those species still needed protection. In such a case, the state would then have to launch its own research and regulatory process, which could leave species unprotected indefinitely, according to Granger.

The new law, sponsored by Assemblywoman Didi Barrett and Senator Todd Kaminsky, empowers the Commissioner of Environmental Conservation to protect the state’s animals and plants, “regardless of the removal of such designation as an endangered or threatened species by the Secretary of the Interior.”

“Critical species are declining worldwide,” said Michelle Land, clinical associate professor in Dyson College’s Department of Environmental Studies and Science. “The federal government has sent many signals it may further weaken endangered species protections. Any state that relies on federal designations must strengthen its laws, or risk losing key native species.”

“In some circumstances, such as migrating animals, the federal government may possess the evidence to designate them as endangered or threatened,” said Granger. “But if it removes that designation for its own reasons, it can leave state species without vital protections.” Granger, who conducted her research in 2018 while a student in Dyson College’s Masters in Environmental Policy program, is now a policy associate with the Animal Welfare Institute in Washington, DC.

One example cited by the Policy Clinic is Atlantic Sturgeon, the iconic state fish that can reach more than 200 pounds, and which migrates from the ocean to spawn in the Hudson River. In 2012, the Department of the Interior gave it endangered species status based on federal research. “That action automatically added the sturgeon to the New York State list. Under the new law, it will remain on the state list as long as the Commissioner of Environmental Conservation deems necessary, even if Interior removes it from the federal list,” said Professor Land.

The Pace Environmental Policy Clinic has earned a national reputation for its work developing innovative environmental protections on a range of issues. The New York State Elephant Protection Act, authored and lobbied by Clinic students, was the first law in the nation to prohibit the use of elephants in circuses and all other forms of entertainment. The Clinic was co-founded and is taught by Professor Land, Dyson College, and John Cronin, director of the Blue CoLab at Pace’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems. In fulfillment of Pace University’s dedication to civic engagement, the Clinic trains undergraduate students as policy practitioners, lobbyists, and advocates through a program of learning and service. Students apply their Pace University education to the creation of real-world environmental solutions and the development of professional skills that serve society.

Press Release: Pace University Unveils New Student Veterans Center

09/21/2020

Press Release: Pace University Unveils New Student Veterans Center

$200,000 State Grant through State Sen. Harckham’s Office Paves Way for Resource Center for Student Veterans

PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. – September 21, 2020 – President Marvin Krislov joined New York State Senator Peter Harckham, student veterans and campus leaders on Monday for a grand opening of Pace University’s Student Veterans Center on its Pleasantville campus.

The new center, which was made possible with the help of a $200,000 grant secured by Senator Harckham, will serve as a one-stop resource center for student veterans at Pace, which has hundreds of student veterans and dependents across its campuses, including 60 in Westchester. The new SVC is centrally located on campus inside the Kessel Student Center. Watch a video of the ribbon cutting here.

“Pace University has a proud tradition of supporting student veterans and their families, and this new Student Veterans Center, our first space dedicated exclusively to their needs, will help us deliver on that mission,” said President Krislov. “We are grateful to Senator Harckham for his support. He shares our firm belief that we must go above and beyond to serve those who have served our country.”

“The new Student Veterans Center at Pace University’s Pleasantville campus will be an important resource for the Pace veterans community, and I am pleased to have supported its creation from the start,” State Sen. Harckham added. “These days, more veterans of our Armed Services are pursuing postsecondary educations, and their needs differ somewhat from typical college students in terms of certain resources and socialization. Pace’s Veterans Center is a recognition of this shift in the student body, and will be met with wide appreciation as a result.”

The SVC will offer a central location on campus to connect, socialize and use the school's resources. Veterans, for example, will be able to obtain information on how to work with, and navigate, the VA, as well as the various educational benefits student veterans are entitled to including the Forever GI Bill, Post 9/11 GI Bill, Yellow Ribbon Program and Vocational Rehab.

“This is a dream come true,” said Steven Garcia, a USMC Veteran and Past President of the Student Veterans of America’s Pleasantville chapter. “Bringing veterans together at one central location will be great for the entire Pace community. This space will be essential in helping connect veterans with available resources at Pace and get them the support they need to be successful. I want to thank Senator Harckham and Pace for making this possible.”  ​

“We are here today because like many others, Senator Harckham recognizes and believes in the importance of community building,” said Sukh Singh, a USMC Veteran and member of Pace University’s Class of 2021. “The SVA has put in countless hours to receive more recognition in our community. So, this is a crucial milestone for Pace’s student veterans who finally have a space to grow and support one another in their pursuits of higher education.”

Senator Harckham last year joined student veterans and university leaders to announce the project. Construction on the new Student Veterans Center began this past winter – delayed only slightly because of the pandemic -- and was completed over the summer.

“Student veterans contribute to the diversity and campus life here at Pace University,” said COL (Ret) Peter Riley, director of Pace Office of Veterans Services. “It is terrific that veterans have their own Center. It gives them a place to use the computers, study, relax, commiserate and support each other. We appreciate all the effort that Senator Harckham and his staff did to open the Veterans Center. COVID-19 might have delayed its opening, but could not prevent it.”
