Pace is the Place
Pace Is the Place
At Pace, education goes far beyond textbooks and classrooms. Our campuses are a center of discussion and debate about many of the major issues of our time, as well as a forum for unforgettable cultural events.
As you may know, Vice President Joe Biden recently chose Pace for a panel discussion on the status of the federal stimulus package. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos chose Pace for the introduction of the Kindle DX, the new electronic reading device that could revolutionize the way students interact with textbooks.
In September, Pace is partnering with the National Museum of the American Indian to host the New York premiere of River of Tides, a play commissioned by Pace from renowned Abenaki playwright Joseph Bruchac to recognize the role of the American Indian in the European discovery of the Hudson River. Pace will also host New York State’s first conference on the development of a comprehensive New York State water policy, the launch event for the Pace Academy for Applied Environmental Studies.
In October, Pace becomes the center of worldwide economic policymaking and discussion as host of the Buttonwood Gathering, an annual meeting of the world’s leading economists sponsored by The Economist magazine. This year’s speakers will include U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, and business leader and philanthropist George Soros. Students will have the opportunity to participate in several of the open forums.
On the cultural front, Pace will be the New York home of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre of London in December for a two week run of Love’s Labours Lost. Also in New York’s City, The Village Light Opera Group will be in residence at Pace this fall, as will our perennial favorite, Inside the Actor’s Studio on Bravo.
We hope that your son or daughter will put books aside and enjoy the broad menu of unique experiences that make a Pace education invaluable.
