For Faculty

The Center for Community Action and Research (CCAR) recognizes that Pace faculty are leaders in areas of civic engagement and social justice. 

Civic Engagement and Public Values Course Support

One hallmark of the Pace Core Curriculum is a three-credit Civic Engagement and Public Values (CE) requirement which is supported by CCAR.  Pace offers over 100 CE course sections across all schools and disciplines every year.

CCAR supports CE faculty in areas including:

  • Course development (including grants)
  • Best practices in community-based learning courses
  • Internal and external networking opportunities
  • Hiring and training FACES teaching assistants for CE courses
  • In class presentations for CE courses

For more information on the ways that CCAR supports faculty and CE courses please contact CCAR.

The Jefferson Awards for Public Service recognize individuals for their public and volunteer service, and dedication to improving the quality of life in their communities. Faculty, staff, and students can nominate any individual from the Pace University community.
