PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- Pace University President Stephen J. Friedman has announced he will not seek reappointment as President of the university in June 2017. Upon the conclusion of his second term, Friedman will have served 10 years as University president.

"As a community, we have come a very long way together in renewing and strengthening virtually every aspect of the academic, physical, and student life of Pace University, as well as its management and administration, and I am very proud of what we have achieved," Friedman said in a letter to the Pace community.

“Stephen Friedman is a transformational figure who, from day one, had a keen sense of the University’s potential and a visionary plan to achieve it," said Mark Besca, Chairman of Pace University’s Board of Trustees. "Throughout two remarkable terms as president, he has demonstrated passionate advocacy for our students and worked tirelessly to position Pace for a bold and bright future.”

Friedman became the seventh president of Pace University in June 2007. He was reappointed for a second five-year term by unanimous vote of the University’s Board of Trustees in 2011. Prior to being named president, he served for three years as dean of Pace University School of Law.
