The increasing synergy between healthcare and machine learning technologies. Understanding how big data is revolutionizing the business world. The relationship between environmental sustainability and the financial markets. These are just a few of many interdisciplinary realms that are increasingly working in concert in the 21st century—something that Pace faculty is committed to exploring through research and scholarship, while preparing students for the challenges ahead.

On April 7, Pace’s Office of Research invites you to The Future of Pace, an interdisciplinary online conference featuring panel discussions and faculty research presentations, as well as a keynote address by Dan Porterfield, president and CEO of the Aspen Institute, a global nonprofit organization committed to realizing a free, just, and equitable society.

The primary goal of the conference is to bring together faculty to help Pace address its future needs through scholarship and academic programs. The conference also hopes to encourage greater interdisciplinary cooperation among faculty with overlapping interests and use Pace’s Strategic Plan as a guideline to help foster innovative scholarship.

“The new Strategic Plan has identified four areas of academic opportunity—technology and business, health, wellness, and sciences, sustainability and justice, and arts, humanities—for our faculty to develop new scholarly programs," said Associate Provost for Research Avrom Caplan, PhD. "The conference is arranged around those themes with the goal of getting faculty to talk about their work among their peers.”
