September 11 Remembrances

News Story

Join the Pace Community in commemorating the anniversary of 9/11/01 with vigils on both campuses, sharing our stories, and more.

The events of 9/11 have had a profound effect on a generation of people around the world, but our University, located mere blocks away from the World Trade Center, felt the impact first-hand. Fourteen years ago, the Pace Community lost 47 members—students and alumni alike—and was closed for several weeks as we worked toward recovery.

Join Pace students, faculty, and staff at events being held on both campuses:
