Institute for Public Affairs & Civic Engagement (PACE)
PACE is a non-partisan institute committed to undergraduate learning that sparks interest in public affairs and civic engagement, and acts as a resource center for local government, nonprofits and public groups. PACE provides students with enriching learning experiences through interactive, thoughtful seminars; sponsoring a lecture series that brings top-level national political leaders to campus; policy and survey research; hands-on internships and much more.
Distinguished faculty bolster our efforts by teaching courses in diverse disciplines, such as philosophy, political science, biology, history and communication arts. PACE impacts the civic life of the Eastern Shore by hosting public forums, events, leadership training sessions for local citizens, and motivating our students to use their talents and energy to become tomorrow's civic leaders.
