NEW YORK -- For most students, the first day of school is still weeks away. However, preparations for the upcoming semester are already underway at Pace University, as the school's incoming president, Marvin Krislov, begins his presidency this month.

Having come to Pace after serving as president of Oberlin College for the past 10 years, Krislov, 56, succeeds Stephen J. Friedman, 78, who announced in February 2016 that he planned to step down after 13 years with Pace, including the last 10 as president.

“I am honored to be chosen to lead Pace University during this exciting period of growth and revitalization as the university advances its position as one of the nation’s foremost institutions in fostering the leaders of tomorrow,” said Krislov. “Pace’s commitment to access and pathways to success for students inspires me."

Prior to his career in higher education, Krislov served in the U.S. Department of Labor as acting solicitor from 1997–1998 and for two years before that as deputy solicitor of national operations. He took the position in the department after serving as associate counsel in the Office of Counsel to the President.

Krislov earned a bachelor’s degree, summa cum laude, from Yale University in 1982, and was named a Rhodes Scholar. He earned master’s degrees at the University of Oxford and Yale, and in 1988 earned a juris doctor degree from Yale Law School, where he was editor of the Yale Law Journal.

"I look forward to working with a community of scholars and leaders who are dedicated to academic excellence and who have such a powerful impact on so many lives,” said Krislov.
