Pace Institute began its transformation after World War II into a modern university with emphasis on the liberal arts and sciences. With dynamic leadership and fiscally sound management, Pace grew from rented facilities and few resources into one of the largest universities in New York State, with a multimillion dollar physical plant, an endowment of nearly $100 million and a reputation for excellent teaching and talented, ambitious graduates.
From its origins as an institute with an excellent business curriculum that prepared men and women for careers in accounting, Pace’s Lubin School of Business has continued to improve, building its reputation for excellence in business education. The University founded the Lienhard School of Nursing, the School of Law, the School of Education, and the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems in response to the need for strong professionals in other disciplines.
Together Pace University’s six schools and colleges provide outstanding professional preparation that meets the needs of employers in the New York metropolitan area and around the globe.
Now over 100 years old, Pace is a private, metropolitan university located in New York City and Westchester County whose six schools and one college offer a wide range of academic and professional programs.
Educating achievers who are engaged with critical issues both locally and globally, the University enrolls more than 14,000 students in bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs. Pace is building an increasing array of study abroad options, a healthy mentoring program that has produced 27 Fulbright scholars in the last seven years, and a focus on international recruitment.

Pace University is a metropolitan New York university with a growing national reputation for offering students opportunity, rich teaching and learning, civic engagement, and measurable results.

Students’ educational experiences are enriched by an environment filled with diverse culture and art, populated by citizens of the world, and alive with activity.
Pace’s modern Midtown Center at 551 Fifth Avenue and 45th Street in Manhattan, only blocks away from Grand Central Station, offers graduate and undergraduate courses to goal-oriented people looking to advance their careers.
The Pleasantville campus in mid-Westchester County is set on 200 acres of rolling countryside where Pace flourishes as the only private university in the county, and offers a broad range of undergraduate degree programs in a stimulating collegiate environment.
The Briarcliff annex, a short distance from Pleasantville, is the location of residence halls, recreational facilities, and administrative offices. A shuttle bus provides continuous service between the campuses. Pace’s School of Law, and a center for other graduate courses in business, public administration, and computing are located in White Plains, the hub of Westchester County.
All campuses are linked by the powerful, goal-oriented features of a Pace University education—personal attention, flexibility, and responsiveness to the needs and expectations of a diverse and demanding student population.
