Dear Staff:

The divisions of Student Assistance, Student Affairs, and Student Success have collaborated in order to better serve our Veteran students.  We will also be reaching out to faculty and staff who may have served in the military as well to serve as “military friendly” mentors to our Veteran Students. The specific services and programs offered to our Veteran students will include academic success workshops, a specialized orientation to help Veterans transition from military life to the university, and Brandon McCluskey, Student Success Advisor will serve as the main contact for our Veteran students after they are certified by the Office of Student Assistance and Financial Aid.  A few of our Veteran students are hoping to be a recognized student organization next spring so they can join the national organization and offer the benefits of the national organization to our Veteran students. As we create new programs and services for our Veteran Students we will be updating the Veterans website.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Matt Bonilla, Mark Allen Poisel or me.

President Friedman has created a new blog for communication with Faculty and Staff. You can view the blog at https://friedman-blog.pace.edu/

The Counseling Center has sent the Administrative Staff Council a survey to assess what might be needed by our community in the aftermath of all the tragic and traumatic events of the fall semester.  It will give them a good idea of what the outreach and programming needs might be.

Please take a few minutes to complete the survey at


Thank you!
