Higher Education Administrator
Karyn Pace, a founding family member and board member, has worked in student affairs in higher education for 20 years at large and small private institutions, as well as at large public institutions.

As an administrator, she has helped universities develop policies that reflect the schools' missions, overseen college student discipline systems, overseen Title IX compliance and training, worked in crisis management, and developed and implemented behavioral interventions.
Ms. Pace earned a bachelor's in English from William Jewell College, Liberty, Mo., and a master's of education from Boston University. She has also run in the Boston Marathon twice—in 1999 and 2000.

“I was deeply moved by the concept of shaping a school around the concept of intellectual virtues from the beginning. I believe that when we focus on how our students think about thinking, we open a new universe of possibilities within their hearts and minds. Of all the educational strategies that I have encountered, this one captured what I believe is the essence of education. Creating a school environment that is not about competition and compliance, rather deep, long-term, love of learning, is inspirational to me.”
