Welcome to the Spring 2024 semester. 

I am thrilled to kick off a new semester and a fresh year filled with ambition and accomplishments. As we eagerly anticipate Commencement 2024, scheduled for Monday, May 20 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, exciting things are happening across all our campuses.

United by our shared commitment to making a positive impact on the world and the lives of our students, we approach the year with optimism. We are steadfast in showcasing the value of higher education and supporting the Pace Community through initiatives such as the student success programs, wellness efforts for the entire community, and initiatives to enhance the employee experience for our dedicated staff and faculty. Additionally, this month marks the launch of a new speaker series from the Barry M. and Jackie Gosin Center for Equity and Inclusion featuring Spotify's Global Head of Equity and Impact Elizabeth Nieto.

I urge you to actively engage, participate, and stay connected as we continue to build upon our legacy of excellence.

In this issue of Pace Now, we highlight inspiring stories within our community, including an interdisciplinary field study with the Equal Justice Initiative, interviews with two amazing students, and a glimpse into a Dyson professor Corinna Sager's enlightening new documentary on climate gentrification in Miami.

On February 20, I will provide an update on the state of the University and outline our plans for the future during my State of the University address. This address will take place at the Kessel Student Center on our Pleasantville Campus, with a virtual livestream available for broader participation. Following the address, there will be an opportunity for a meaningful dialogue through a Q&A session, addressing our collective achievements and the challenges we face. I look forward to sharing this important information with the Pace Community and engaging in constructive discussions about our journey ahead.

I look forward to seeing you all on campus this spring.
