Westchester Magazine featured the College of Health Professions in "Pace University Receives $1 Million in State Funds for Its Healthcare Hub"

Pace University plans to transform Lienhard Hall, home to its College of Health Professions on the Pleasantville campus, into a modernized Healthcare Hub.

Pace University will add programming for students preparing for careers in the region’s healthcare and biotechnology sector while adding to and modernizing existing lab, classroom, and simulation space.

 The grant, awarded as part of the New York State’s Higher Education Capital Matching Grant Program, is intended to increase preparation, laboratories, and facilities in health sciences throughout the state, all with the goal of meeting technology demands in the healthcare sector and preparing much-needed nurses in New York State.

“The new Healthcare Hub on our Pleasantville campus will enable Pace University to continue our proud tradition of educating nurses and other health professionals in such high demand in our region,” says Pace President Marvin Krislov.

 The state grant to Pace University is part of $57.2 million provided to 35 colleges and universities across New York State. All recipients must invest $3 for every $1 the state provides.

“These state investments in higher-ed capital projects are smart-growth, job-creating engines that will benefit our communities for years to come,” says New York State Sen. Pete Harckham.

A sea change in student life

College campuses in Westchester adjusted to pandemic-related challenges relatively well over the course of 2020, with some embracing innovations in learning and student life that will likely last for many years to come.

In October,College Magazine touted Pleasantville-based Pace University as having the fourth-best response to COVID-19 among higher educational institutions in the nation. The magazine praised the university’s impressive response plan, prorated housing and meal refunds, pass-fail grading, and random testing linked to the college’s “Pace Safe” security app. The university also launched the New York Recovery internship program, which placed and funded 65 students at 24 different nonprofit organizations conducting pandemic relief work in the region. “We helped organizations that were struggling — and some students have even secured jobs out of this, as well,” notes Pace University president Marvin Krislov. “We’ve also learned that we can do a lot remotely.”

Krislov adds that for 2021, the spring semester will likely look very similar to the fall. “It’s an uncertain situation,” he adds, with shifts that occur based on infection rates and the status of the pandemic. “But we are hoping to have more in-person activities and hoping to have athletics up and running.”

Westchester Magazine featured Haub Law Dean Horace Anderson in "Meet the "Leaders Who Are Changing Westchester

Westchester Magazine featured Haub Law Dean Horace Anderson in "Meet the "Leaders Who Are Changing Westchester

– The Legal Philosopher –

Horace Anderson Jr.
Dean, Elizabeth Haub School of Law, Pace University

Horace Anderson Jr. is used to defying expectations. The son of Jamaican immigrants, Anderson attended college at the University of Pennsylvania before leaving a successful legal career to ascend the ranks at Pace University, where he now serves as dean of the Elizabeth Haub School of Law. Among several other honors, Anderson currently serves on a Westchester task force, as well as an ad-hoc committee in Jersey City that reviews policies and procedures related to police enforcement and discrimination. At Pace, Anderson is firmly focused on providing students with futures they might never have believed possible.

“I believe Pace plays a special role in the legal-education landscape and that we are bringing people to a new level in terms of their socioeconomic stations and professional opportunities,” notes Anderson. “That is what I think the Haub School of Law is about: helping to bring along a new and different generation of lawyers.” Apparently, this philosophy is paying off, as it was under Anderson’s leadership that U.S. News & World Report recognized Pace as having the number-one environmental-law program in America for the first time.

In the aftermath of George Floyd’s death, Anderson reassessed the importance of his station, which he has held since December 2019 (although he has taught at Pace since 2004): “It jolted me into thinking about ways not to just sit on our laurels and be proud of what we have done in the past or are doing today, but what we can do in the future,” shares Anderson. “We might be doing new things, but we are still serving the same philosophy: using the law to make the world better, to make people’s lives better, and to pursue justice.”
