OPPORTUNITAS: The Promise of Pace is the motto of utes from the New York City campus, these two suburban loca-
Pace: Opportunitas. A remarkable array of living, learning and working opportunities await each student. This comprehensive University offers five undergraduate schools and colleges and more than 100 academic majors. * THE FACULTY -- The faculty at Pace bring practical experience in a discipline or profession to their classroom teaching. They know what it takes to succeed because they've experienced success themselves. Professors pursue research in areas that span the curriculum including business, accounting, biology, communications, the natural sciences, health care, nursing, computer science and education, among others. * COOPERATIVE EDUCATION -- Take advantage of the University's extraordinary Cooperative Education Program, the largest and most comprehensive co-op program among four-year colleges and universities in the New York City area. Each year Pace places over 1,100 students in over 450 multinational, national, regional, and local organizations. The opportunity to apply classroom theory into hands-on professional settings allows you to assess how you feel about a particular profession. Also, you will gain a valuable competitive edge in the job market. One-third of the co-op students receive job offers from their co-op employers. * OPEN HOUSE -- We invite you to visit the University and form your own opinion of Pace. Talk to students, talk to professors, sit in on a few classes, meet with the Admissions staff and tour the campus. During our Open House Days, you can get your first taste of Pace's environment through personal contact and first hand experience. ONE UNIVERSITY - TWO CAMPUSES: No matter what you are seeking in a college setting, you can find it at one of Pace's two different locations. Whichever campus you choose, you will also have the opportunity to take courses on the other campus.
*PLEASANTVILLE/BRIARCLIFF -- About forty min-
tions, minutes apart, are administered as one campus. In addition to a serene setting, the campus is noted for its Environmental Center and stables complete with horses, goats, and geese. Tennis courts, outdoor basketball and sand volleyball courts and Willcox Gymnasium provide ample opportunities for athletics and recreation. In keeping with its commitment to its students, community and quality campus life, Pace completed construction of the new 75,000-square foot, 17 million dollar Goldstein Health, Fitness and Recreation Center. The campus offers many living options ranging from three new townhouse complexes to seven residence halls.
* NEW YORK CITY -- The New York City campus, located in lower Manhattan, offers the best of everything that makes New York special. A short walk from Wall Street and the famous South Street Seaport, our New York campus stands across the street from historic City Hall. Nearby public transportation makes commuting fast and easy. The 650-seat Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts, located on campus, is the site of acclaimed student productions, concerts and performers including the Joffrey Ballet, as well as the new home of the celebrated National Actors Theater. EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES: Students with a creative flair and a desire to communicate have no problem finding an outlet; Pace sponsors two newspapers, two literary magazines, two radio stations and two yearbooks. Plays, concerts, and performances by professionals and amateurs also enhance student life. There is also an active Student Government Association on each campus. The New York and Pleasantville campuses each sponsor several fraternities and sororities. While the emphasis is on good times and bonding, these organizations also put their energies to good work by sponsoring community service projects. Pace offers the opportunity to participate in athletics, either varsity or intramural. The Setters compete in 19 varsity sports in NCAA Division II.

THE PACE STORY:
Pace is a university whose resources have played an essential role in the realization of individual dreams of achievement and whose mission is voiced in its motto: Opportunitas.
Founded in 1906 by the Pace brothers as a business school for men and women who aspired to a better life, Pace Institute began its transformation into a modern university, with emphasis on the liberal arts and sciences, under Robert Pace 42 years later. With dynamic leadership and fiscally sound management, Pace has grown into one of the largest universities in New York State, with a multi-million dollar physical plant, an endowment of over $100 million and a reputation for excellent teaching and talented, ambitious graduates.
Pace is a comprehensive university with five schools and one college that offers a wide range of academic and professional programs for a large, diverse population of more than 13,000 students in for-credit programs, and in affiliated offerings. Through its Lubin School of Business, Pace continues to build its reputation for excellence in business education. The Lienhard School of Nursing, the School of Law, the School of Education and the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems are more recent responses to the needs of the New York City and Westchester communities for strong professional schools to prepare a well-educated workforce.
The University's decision in 1948 to develop a college of arts and sciences as both an autonomous academic unit and a foundation for the undergraduate core curriculum has strengthened and enriched the educational experience of Pace students and provided an ongoing source of intellectual enrichment to the University. The Dyson College of Arts and Sciences is central to the intellectual life of Pace, to shaping academic priorities, and to providing ethical, humanistic and scientific principles upon which lives and careers are founded.
At the heart of Pace's academic values is an historic commitment to excellence in teaching, as manifested by small classes, an emphasis on skill development and critical thinking, special tutoring and support services, and academic advising. Academic experiences at Pace emphasize teaching from both a practical and theoretical perspective, drawing upon the expertise of faculty who balance academic preparation with professional experience to bring a unique dynamic to the classroom.
While the primary emphasis of the institution is on excellent teaching, the university supports and encourages scholarly activity to ensure the intellectual vitality of the faculty. While much of the work has had professional application, Pace particularly invites scholarship that directly relates to the classroom experience and involves students in the research process.
Pace has always had a student-centered focus and is committed to providing access to those who range widely in age, ethnicity, socio-economic background and academic preparation. Increasing amounts of institutional financial aid to help students meet the growing costs of a private education; locations in New York City and Westchester County; evening, weekend and summer scheduling; and special counseling and academic support services are ways in which the university has sought to enhance the accessibility and opportunities of a Pace education.
A significant tradition of Pace University is its strong relationship with business, civic and community organizations. Offering special programs and services to neighboring institutions and corporate partners, the university gains strength in return from these partnerships and derives benefits for its students from the networks these linkages provide.
The future of Pace University will be shaped by its traditions and values as they respond to the current needs and expectations of today's students. Combining excellence in instruction with personal attention, Pace provides the virtues of the small arts and sciences college with the curricular richness, scholarly disposition and excellent professional programs of the research and comprehensive institution.
HISTORY OF PACE UNIVERSITY:
Pace is a University whose resources have played an essential role in the realization of individual dreams of achievement, and whose mission is voiced in the motto: Opportunitas.
Founded in 1906 by the Pace brothers, Homer and Charles, The Pace Institute was a business school for men and women who aspired to a better life.
Homer and Charles Pace borrowed $600 to rent a classroom and office in the old Tribune building in lower Manhattan to teach 10 men and three women the principles of accounting and business law. That building once stood where the Pace Plaza building stands today.
Two years later, because of the overwhelming success of the Pace School of Accountancy, the Pace brothers relocated classes to the nearby Hudson Terminal complex. Another move to the Transportation Building at 225 Broadway took place in 1927 in response to continued growth.
In 1948, Pace Institute was approved for college status by the New York Board of Regents. Academic expansion forced yet another move to 41 Park Row in 1951, and two years later Pace College received authorization from the State Education Department to grant the bachelor of arts degree. Classes began on the Pleasantville campus in 1963. The year before, the Marks Hall building was signed over to the College by Pace Trustee Wayne Marks, President of General Foods, and his wife, Helen. Soon after, Dyson Hall was constructed, named in honor of alumnus, Trustee and benefactor, Charles H. Dyson. Willcox Hall was named for Trustee and benefactor Byron Willcox.
In 1965, the Undergraduate School of Business Administration, the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education were established. The year following, the School of Nursing was founded and was later named after alumnus, Trustee and benefactor Gustav Lienhard. In December 1966, at the groundbreaking ceremony for the Civic Center building, Vice President Hubert Humphrey promised to teach at Pace and conducted a Scholar-in-Residence seminar at the New York City campus.
Finally, in 1973, the State Education Department approved Pace College's petition for university status. Two years later, the College of White Plains consolidated with Pace University, and the School of Law was established in 1976. The assets of Briarcliff College were acquired in 1977. In the years following, an international education center was opened by IBM Corporation, NYNEX opened a center and the Hastings Center moved its operations to the Briarcliff site. In 1983, the School of Computer Science and Information Systems was established as its own entity. In 1997, Pace purchased the World Trade Institute, a leading-edge provider of international training programs.
Pace University today is a diverse institution with over 13,000 students. For 100 years, bright, motivated and talented men and women have walked out of Pace's many doors, degrees in hand, and have ventured into the world prepared for the challenges of each passing decade. Every year, curriculum offerings in schools and colleges are modified to meet the changing needs of ambitious and knowledgeable students.
Throughout the years since 1906, Pace has grown along with the talents of those who comprise what is affectionately known as the "Pace community." The Pace tradition is something in which we can all take pride.

MISSION STATEMENT: Pace University is committed to providing the best possible private education to a diverse and talented student body at each Pace University location. The University’s continuous commitment to Opportunitas must be retained, strengthened and, when necessary, redefined in an uncertain world where many are excluded from the full benefits of higher education due to economic and social factors beyond their control. Pace’s sustained emphasis on excellence will be a constant, which will guide decision-making regarding academic programs and other endeavors. In a world of increasing interdependence, Pace must strengthen its international efforts and continue its significant investment in technology. In addition, the University’s commitment to self-evaluation and civic engagement must remain as major goals. All of this must be accomplished during a time of considerable economic change and in the context of strengthening Pace’s own financial base.
