PACE is a collaborative interdisciplinary unit of public affairs-oriented scholars. Students in our programs are immersed in a problem-oriented learning environment that extends beyond the classroom and into the community, the public arena, and the world. Building on an ethos of social justice and sustainability, faculty prepare PACE graduates with the critical and analytical skills necessary to understand and address the issues and challenges of the twenty-first century and to critically engage with those in their communities.
We are proud of our students and how they impact each other positively in and out of the classroom! Learn more about our current MPA Student, Iese, expected M.P.A. 2025
