Remembering September 11

News Story

Join the Pace Community in commemorating the 15th anniversary of 9/11/01 with vigils on both campuses, stories from our community, and memorials made from the heart.

Fifteen years ago, the tragic events of 9/11 were not only felt around the world, but also at our University located just blocks away from the World Trade Center—where our nation and our community were forever changed within a matter of hours that day. The Pace Community mourned the loss 47 members—students and alumni alike—and was closed for several weeks as we worked toward recovery.

Come together with the Pace Community to remember, reflect, and honor those we lost at events being held on both campuses:
