Parents & Families
Ready for your sons and daughters to reach their full potential? Get ready to meet Pace University
Pace University prepares students for success in a variety of professions. Our goal is to educate thinking professionals and for more than 100 years we have accomplished this by combining a liberal arts education with professional preparation and career skills. Through our Core Curriculum, students learn critical reasoning and communication skills that serve them throughout their lifetime. This learning is augmented by professional preparation that is practice focused, giving students the edge they will need to enter the workforce.
In addition to class work, Pace’s Career Services program, the largest in the New York Metropolitan Area, places more than 1,450 students into career launching internships. Students also have the opportunity to attend resume writing, business etiquette, and job interview seminars, and career fairs, which attract hundreds of employers to both campuses. Pace understands the value of a college education, and makes sure each student is ready to contribute on the first day they join the workforce and is prepared to succeed throughout their career.
This e-newsletter, which is sent out four times a year, is just one of the ways Pace helps you stay involved in your students’ lives on campus. Here you can find information about important events, academic and social services for students, faculty and student profiles, and much more. Answers to commonly asked questions, online resources, and ways to connect with other Pace parents are all at your fingertips.

- Your sons and daughters will be prepared. Today’s job market demands more than a bachelor’s degree–students must have the right knowledge, skills, experience, and challenging coursework to get ahead in their chosen profession. Pace students are prepared. In 2013, U.S. News and World Report Short List named Pace among the top five schools in the nation for placing undergraduates in internships.
- Your sons and daughters will be in good hands. At both our campuses, Pace provides 24-hour, professional security services at every university building. Visitors may only enter Pace-owned buildings with either a Pace ID or a validated form of identification. Our security team also provides walking escorts between any two points on campus if needed.
- Your sons and daughters will get involved. In addition to academic and professional preparation, Pace provides numerous outlets for students to make friends, take part in campus activities, and explore the areas around them. Every year, Pace’s active student organizations plan campus events, bring in big-name speakers, and hold socials for students. To unwind, Pace brings in musical performers and hosts Inside the Actors Studio on campus. And parents and families are invited, too! Each year, Homecoming acts as a weekend-long program for parents and students to explore all that Pace has to offer.
Pace University is committed to achieving full equal opportunity in all aspects of University life. Pursuant to this commitment, the University does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, age, ethnicity, marital status, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, disability, or veteran status.
