Empowering Socially Responsible ThinkersHow Do They Do It? The hallmark of the Center has been service learning courses, or as they are known at Pace, Civic Engagement and Public Value courses. The Center connects professors with community organizations to create courses that combine academics with social issues and include a community engagement component. Examples include: an economics course in which students evaluated 20 years of trends in giving to the Westchester Chapter of the American Red Cross, a calculus course where students tutored their subject in local schools, and a psychology course in which students and the local Salvation Army created a conference for several hundred people to raise awareness of human trafficking. These courses present students with important issues of the day and encourage them to seek solutions by uncovering the implications of social policy on individuals and society at large. The Center for Community Action and Research (CCAR), which celebrated its 10th anniversary this year, offers much more than just community service opportunities for students. It also coordinates Pace's participation in two prestigious national civic engagement initiatives: Project Pericles and the Jefferson Awards, and has helped ensure that Pace is on the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll and a Carnegie Foundation Community Engagement designee. Through its many programs, CCAR helps develop students who are critical thinkers, problem solvers, global citizens, and are empowered to effect change. 8 | Dyson College of Arts and SciencesCommunity Service
