Looking Back: OMA Events

Self Defense Workshop

Tuesday, April 1, 2014


Gymnasium, 1 Pace Plaza

Join Nivea Castro—attorney, former judge, photographer, and black belt martial arts educator—in an introduction to self-defense techniques.

Please make sure to wear loose, comfortable clothing.


White Privilege Lecture









Mention the words “White Privilege” and contested debates will emerge.  While some might consider these conversations to be divisive, they are nonetheless essential, in order to gain an understanding on the history and manifestations of race and privilege.  Join us in a provocative interdisciplinary conversation with Pace faculty.
