Presidential Search Archive

After 12 years of service to the University, first as the Dean of Pace Law School and then as Pace President, Stephen J. Friedman announced he will not request reappointment (PDF) when his current term ends on June 30, 2017.

The Pace University Board of Trustees has launched a search for the University’s eighth president. The next president will build on the University’s growth and momentum established during President Stephen J. Friedman’s tenure.

A Presidential Search Committee with faculty, student, trustee, and administrative representation will advise the Board in connection with the selection of a new President. You can contact the Search Committee by emailing

Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates, an executive search firm specializing in higher education executive recruitment, has been retained to assist with the Presidential Search.

This website is dedicated to keeping the Pace Community and public informed on the search for Pace University’s eighth president.
