When EY found themselves in need of an online program to educate their tax professionals abroad, Pace's Legal Studies and Taxation department was ready to meet the challenge head on.
On Monday, May 16, Pace held the largest Commencement ceremony in our history to celebrate the classes of 2020, 2021, and 2022 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York. As this was our first full-fledged Commencement ceremony in three years, we savored the opportunity to celebrate in style with our entire community at a truly incredible venue—fitting of the accomplishments and perseverance of our graduates.
This year’s Honorary Degree Recipients included New York City Mayor Eric Adams; US Representative for New York’s 6th Congressional District Grace Meng, JD; and finance and philanthropy leader Baroness Ariane de Rothschild ’88, MBA ’90. This year’s Opportunitas in Action Award winners included Marco Damiani, CEO of AHRC NYC, and Joseph Kenner, CEO of Greyston.
“We chose Pace. Little did we know, we were not just gaining a home, but we were gaining a community filled with people who want to see all its members attain their dreams.”
—Victoria L. Rooney '22, Valedictorian Speaker
