Faculty Institute 2015

News Story

This month, the 14th annual Faculty Institute addresses who gets to graduate from Pace and why. Join us on the New York City Campus for sessions about retention, the Pace Path, support for students, and so much more.

On May 14 and 15 on the NYC Campus, this year's Faculty Institute takes a close look at the question, "Who Gets to Graduate from Pace and Why?" At the heart of this question is the issue of student retention. The Institute will examine a range of factors related to retention including those within the University's control—engaging and rigorous instruction, strong faculty-student interactions—and at those that may not be open to our influence including students' readiness for college, their expectations about the college experience, and their motivations for enrolling.
