Leadership Opportunities

Setter Leadership Cohort Program

A new initiative organized by the Center for Student Engagement, the Setters Leadership Cohort Program lasts a full semester and focuses on various leadership development theories, social change models, and StrengthsFinders. The program includes the following exciting opportunities for students to get involved:

  • Kick-off retreat
  • Leadership workshops
  • Leadership conference
  • Team-building
  • Personal development
  • Excursions

Leadership Excursion

The Leadership Excursion is an opportunity that allows students from both the New York City and Pleasantville campuses to come together in order to understand the significance of what it means to be a civically responsible citizen. By offering a unique opportunity to explore beyond the classroom, students get a chance to learn about leadership concepts directly by interacting with a new community, cultivating leadership abilities, and learning how to create real, lasting change.

This special opportunity was made possible by the Chartwell's Leadership Scholarship.


PaceTalks is a Ted Talk-style event that showcases a combination of dynamic speakers from within and outside the Pace Community. Each year, PaceTalks features new and exhilarating student speakers and topics ranging from authenticity to embracing inner struggles to much more.

This is an excellent opportunity not just for students to hear from experienced speakers, but also to hear from fellow Pace students who speak on their lived experiences while providing invaluable perspective and insight.

Sign up for PaceTalks on SetterSync.

Setter2Setter Dinner Series

As part of the Setter2Setter series, participating students receive an exclusive invitation to dine with executive board members from various Pace student-run organizations. This is an opportunity for students to informally chat with student leaders about their experiences at Pace, current events, or whatever else might be on their mind—not to mention a free dinner!

Pace student leaders are eager to guide, support, and hear from current students as they navigate college life. Get the most out of your academic experience by getting involved and sharing your unique perspective!

Leadership Fair

The Leadership Fair is a one-stop shop for all students to learn about leadership and on-campus employment positions, as well as an opportunity to connect with various Pace departments, offices, and student-run organizations. One side of the Fair consists of tabling, while the other side offers brief 15-minute information sessions that provide a more in-depth overview of said departments, offices, or student-run organizations to interested students. This is where it all starts—be sure to stop by and discover how to get involved on campus.
