Pace University President, Marvin Krislov with students in the Kessel Student center

Letter from the President

It is my privilege to lead Pace University as we navigate through a time of profound change and build a strong foundation for another century-plus of transforming students’ lives.

I’ve long believed in the power of higher education. When students come to college, they’re exposed to new people, new ideas, and new ways of thinking. They are transformed, and a whole new range of potential futures is unlocked. Especially for first-generation students, college can change not just an individual but also their families and even their communities.

Nowhere is this more true than at Pace. Since our founding in 1906, Pace has been committed to the mission of Opportunitas, creating opportunities for our hard-working, ambitious students. We have a dedicated, inspiring faculty and staff. We take full advantage of our locations in the dynamic New York region. And we’re proud of our diverse and supportive community of learners, scholars, and go-getters.

We specialize in a powerful combination of academic instruction and hands-on learning that today we call the Pace Path. This signature educational model delivers remarkable outcomes for our students. We give all our students—from all sorts of backgrounds—access to the knowledge, skills, and connection that enable them to build successful careers and fulfilling lives.

I came to Pace in 2017 because of those students. Their commitment and determination inspired me then, and it continues to inspire me every day. They are strivers and dreamers. And they’re the next generation of leaders for the New York region, the country, and the world.

All of us in the Pace administration, faculty, and staff are here to make sure they succeed. And we invite you to come be a part of our extraordinary Pace family. Reach out to learn more, to come visit, or even to apply to join us. I hope we’ll see you soon.
