WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Pace University has announced that Nancy A. Garvey has been elected to the university's board of trustees.
Garvey is retired from her former position as vice president and controller at AlliedSignal. She served as vice president and treasurer and staff vice president for investor relations in her 11-year career at AlliedSignal, from 1986-97.
Garvey joins the board of Pace at a time of great change. Pace has experienced higher enrollments, new academic programs, national recognition for the high employment rate and earning power of Pace graduates and significant investments in the learning and living facilities on Pace’s campuses in New York City and Pleasantville. Additionally, Pace celebrated the 50th anniversary of its Pleasantville campus this year.
“I am honored to be able to serve on the Pace board," said Garvey. "Pace has and will continue to serve a student body that is truly representative of our diverse city and our country as a whole. I am eager to be a part of an institution that goes beyond granting a degree, but is integral to shaping our future innovators, thinkers and leaders.”
“Nancy Garvey has excelled at high levels in corporate America, and we are fortunate that her passion has always been education,” said university President Stephen J. Friedman.
“Dr. Garvey’s experience in business and in secondary and higher education will help Pace students – the aspiring heart of America – continue succeeding in a broad range of professions and contribute to the nation’s global competitiveness.”
Garvey is a member and serves as chairman of the board at the Bronx Preparatory Charter School. She is also a trustee for her alma mater, Barnard College, and a member of the advisory board of the Museum of Natural History.
