For more than 30 years, Sabrina A. Griffin's career focus has centered on promoting diversity and inclusion through corporate ranks. She's bringing this experience to her new role as the first-ever Leadership Council Chair of the new Pace University Alumni Association.
Welcome To The New Pace Magazine.
Across our campuses, we’re looking to the future—innovating new programs, forging new partnerships, preparing our students for the workplace of tomorrow. It’s time for Pace Magazine to get a fresh new look and feel, too. You can see what the print issue looks like here.
This redesign is part of the new brand platform we launched last year, which no doubt you’ve noticed in other communications from our University. We call it “Go-Getters,” and it’s a new framework for telling the Pace story of success. As alumni and friends, you know well that we’re a hard-working, ambitious community of doers and strivers who are determined to get ahead. This new brand platform—and its visual expression, which you’re seeing on these pages—creates a framework for us to tell our story, and it brings a powerful and dynamic look and feel to everything we do.
In this issue, you’ll read about many of those doers and strivers, from a remarkable 14-year-old student who just finished his first year as a history major in Dyson, to students working to fight food insecurity in their community, and first-gen students eager to enter the nursing profession.
You’ll also see highlights from our extraordinary Commencement 2022, when we celebrated the classes of 2022, 2021, and 2020 in the biggest and highest-profile event we’ve ever put together.
We went to one of the largest venues in the region—the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens— and we welcomed 16,000 family and friends to help celebrate 4,000 graduates from our six colleges and schools across our three campuses and three graduating campuses. It was a beautiful spring day, headlined by a visionary speech from New York City Mayor Eric Adams, heartfelt advice to our Lubin School of Business graduates from banking and philanthropy leader Baroness Ariane de Rothschild ’88 MBA ’90, and wise counsel to our Haub Law grads from US Representative Grace Meng. It was a day to be reminded why Pace is such a special place.
We’re excited to get that word out to the world—and we hope you enjoy reading all about it in this reinvented magazine.
With Pace pride,
Rob Sands, JD ’84
Chair, Board of Trustees
