Sponsor

Students First Committee, Pace University. Composed by members of entering class (Fall 2007). This petition emerges from classroom study of morality: \"common practices among a group or culture.\" Accountability is deeply ingrained as an academic standard. Students, staff, and faculty at Pace are held accountable, day in, day out. How about presidents and Trustees

Unlike our current president Friedman, Caputo didn't care about anything but himself and his money. The tuition increase that was made was ridiculous, although I was not affected by it. Such a drastic increase in the tuition caused Pace to lose many prospective students. Nevertheless, I know that Friedman will be the man to turn everything around and do things the way they were suppose to be done.
