Community Standards and Compliance
This office recognizes students as active participants in the educational process and avidly promotes student accountability for ethical and moral behavior, and effectively processing redress for inappropriate behavior. University and divisional compliance with federal and state statutes that effect students; and, developing policies that protect and enhance student and institutional entitlement are also major priorities of this office. Scrutiny and implementation of Pace safety and quality standards; review of internal policies and procedures; records maintenance; and readily engaging students as responsible citizens of their University and in service to their chosen communities beyond Pace, rounds out the mission in this area.

Debbie serves as the Assistant Dean for Community Standards and Compliance. Debbie came to Pace from the University of Kentucky in 1982. She is a long time member of the staff and has worked on all three of the University's campuses in a variety of roles, primarily within the Division of Student Affairs. Debbie has always been a staunch student advocate and works with her very dedicated colleagues to ensure students are well represented across the University. Debbie began her latest assignment in Community Standards in the spring of 2014. A University-wide position, Debbie's new role takes her back to her roots and provides an opportunity to travel between the campuses and to meet and work with a large number of students, staff and faculty. One of her greatest joys is reminiscing with alumni who she often meets at University events like Homecoming and a variety of University sponsored events. In addition to her work on behalf of our students, Debbie is a Pace alumna (Dyson '95, earning her M.S. in Counseling) and a Pace parent whose son is a two time Pace grad, earning his B.S. in Criminal Justice and a M.A. in Management, Public Safety and Homeland Security. Debbie is a member of ASCA Association for Student Conduct Administration, AHEAD Association on Higher Education and Disability, NASPA National Association for Student Personal Administration and ACPA American College Personnel Association. She hopes you will stop in and say "Hi!" when you're in the area.
