The institute was established in 1906, when founders Homer Pace, an accountant from the Midwest, and his attorney brother, Charles Pace, began offering preparation for the C.P.A. examination. The institute taught both men and women and was located in the New York Tribune newspaper building which occupies the site of the Pace Civic Center building today, in lower Manhattan. The Institute, which had relocated from its rented quarters in the Tribune building to the Hudson Terminal Building on Church Street on the eve of the war, moved again in 1927 to the newly completed Transportation Building at 225 Broadway because of soaring enrollment.

In 1935, the Institute was incorporated as a non-profit institution of higher education in New York State and received a provisional charter from the Board of Regents. In 1947, under Robert Pace's leadership, Pace Institute became Pace College, a non-profit, non-stock corporation. Between 1964 and 1976 the institute established various schools and colleges which offered new degree programs, which enabled Pace to attain University status in 1973.

Pace has now grown to three campuses in New York City and Westchester County, New York, and enrolls more than 13,000 students in bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs in more than 150 majors and programs.
