About The Office of the Provost

Nira Herrmann, Ph.D.
Interim Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs


Our mission is Opportunitas. Pace University provides to its undergraduates a powerful combination of knowledge in the professions, real-world experience, and a rigorous liberal arts curriculum, giving them the skills and habits of mind to realize their full potential. We impart to our graduate students a deep knowledge of their discipline and connection to its community. This unique approach has been firmly rooted since our founding and is essential to preparing our graduates to be innovative thinkers who will make positive contributions to the world of the future.

Pace will always seek to relate its programs of professional education to the most important currents in those professions, capitalizing on its location in and around New York City to offer students real-world experience through internships and co-operative work experiences, using community service as a learning tool and employing problem-solving and other teaching techniques that reinforce the relationship between a student’s university experience and professional challenges and satisfactions.

The University is committed to diversity in both its educational and work environments by providing equal educational opportunity and a commitment to hiring and retaining a diverse and exceptional faculty and staff.
