Westchester Community College and Pace University have signed a new transfer agreement, allowing students who complete their studies at Westchester Community College to matriculate into Pace with junior standing. The new agreement covers students in twelve Westchester Community College majors.

Westchester Community College students who graduate from those programs with an A.A. or A.S. degree and a minimum grade point average of 2.5 will be guaranteed acceptance to Pace. All students graduating from Westchester Community College’s A.A. or A.S. degree programs will have their general education/core requirements waived if they transfer to Pace. For these students, all courses that receive a passing grade at Westchester Community College will count toward degree completion at Pace. For the transfer students, a maximum of 68 credits will be applied toward the completion of the relevant Pace Bachelor’s degree programs.

For Nursing students in particular, those graduating with an A.A. S. from Westchester Community College’s program are eligible to enroll in the Pace Registered Nurse Bachelor of Science Online Degree Program. Those with a grade point average of 2.75 or better will be guaranteed admission with junior standing. All Nursing students graduating from Westchester Community College will have their lower level general education/core requirements waived if they transfer to Pace. Nursing students transferring to Pace will receive a discounted tuition rate. In addition, Pace will offer scholarships to select transfer students.

“The college is deeply committed to helping our students succeed. This includes strengthening our transfer pathways and forging new agreements with four year institutions. Such agreements truly help our students move on toward real opportunities in the classroom and the workplace as they transition from graduation here to bachelor’s degrees at Pace and subsequent careers in their chosen fields,” said Belinda S. Miles, President, Westchester Community College. “As we seek to simplify and redesign the student experience, this agreement makes it easier for our students to move on in their journeys toward success.”

“I’m thrilled to deepen Pace University’s partnership with Westchester Community College through this innovative agreement.

"Patch" featured Pace University's latest appointment in "Pace University Hires Its First Diversity Officer"

PLEASANTVILLE, NY — Pace University President Marvin Krislov has named Tiffany Hamilton as the college's first Chief Diversity Officer. Hamilton comes to the post from Westchester Community College, where she was associate dean for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

She 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.

"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."

She joins Pace's senior leadership team as Chief Diversity Officer and Associate Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion.

Prior to her work at WCC, where she served as that institution's first chief diversity officer, Hamilton worked for her alma mater, the University of Missouri-Kansas City, in a variety of roles in enrollment, multicultural affairs, and student success.

"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."

The first in her family to attend college, Hamilton holds a bachelor's degree in liberal arts and a master's degree in higher education administration from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. She lives with her husband in Stamford, Connecticut, and is actively involved in Sister to Sister International, the YWCA of White Plains, and the Westchester Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.

Her appointment follows a national search that included exceptional candidates from across the country, college officials said.

"River Journal" featured School of Education's Professor Christine Clayton in "Sleepy Hollow High School Teacher Presents and Implements New Science Curriculum"

"River Journal" featured School of Education's Professor Christine Clayton in "Sleepy Hollow High School Teacher Presents and Implements New Science Curriculum"

Sleepy Hollow High School science teacher, Leana Peltier, along with Pace University professor, Christine Clayton, Ph.D, presented at the 51st Annual Meeting of the New England Educational Research Organization. Their presentation, A Teacher-Led Professional Learning Community: Elementary and Secondary Teachers Inquiring Together about Science Teaching, explores the perceptions of K-12 teachers who participated in a teacher-led, vertically aligned professional learning community focused on integrating inquiry and Next Generation Science Standards.

Peltier and Clayton’s study also examines how the experience shaped self-reported practice and identities of these teachers in thinking about themselves as science teachers and inquirers. Their work considers implications for not only science teachers but for a school district when a vertically-aligned and discipline-based PLC is utilized for professional learning.

With generous grants and funding from The Foundation for the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns and Pace University, Ms. Peltier has been able to implement her work in the Tarrytowns School District for the last two years. In addition to presenting at NEERO, Ms. Peltier shared her paper, Bridging K-12 Science in a School District: An Exploratory Study Using a Vertically Aligned Professional Learning Community at the 2019 Association for Science Teacher Education (ASTE) Conference in Savannah, Georgia.

Pace University’s College of Health Professions (CHP) is launching a new Master of Science in Occupational Therapy, its sixth graduate degree launched in two years. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 24% increase in the employment of occupational therapists by 2026. The MS in Occupational Therapy at Pace is designed to meet the needs of this rapidly growing field and produce competent and ethical practitioners. The program offers a unique hybrid learning approach, combining both online and face-to-face instruction; allowing students flexibility and preparing them for exciting careers in Occupational Therapy.

CHP’s 28-month, 70 credit program is organized around four major themes including evidence-based practice and scholarship, occupation and client-centered approaches, ethics and interprofessional practice, and innovation and technology. Students will be equipped with the capabilities to maximize clients’ quality of life and occupation engagement.

Students in the program will utilize a technologically advanced anatomy visualization system and practice in a variety of simulated settings including a model apartment. Students will share CHP’s Interprofessional Center for Healthcare Simulation with other health professions specialties providing opportunities to collaborate with other disciplines.

Supawadee Lee, Ph.D., M.S., M.A., O.T.R./L., S.I.P.T., a licensed pediatric occupational therapist, educator, and researcher is the Founding Program Director and Assistant Professor of the Occupational Therapy program. According to Lee, “Our MSOT program aims to educate and empower students to become critical thinkers and life-long learners through engaging in hands-on, problem-solving, and active learning experience that incorporate clinical simulations, case-based method, and real-life experience.”

College of Health Professions Dean Harriet R. Feldman, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N. said, “We are so excited to add this important professional program to our growing College of Health Professions. Occupational Therapy students will work alongside professionals in Nursing, Physician Assistant, and Nutrition and Dietetics students on our Pleasantville Campus and interact with students in Communication Sciences and Disorders in New York City. To round out our interprofessional set of programs, the undergraduate Health Science students will have a growing set of graduate programs to aspire to.”
