Become a PACE Peer Leader!

PACE 101 is a course which aims to provide first-year students with the knowledge, skills, and connections needed for a successful transition to Emory. All first-year students are required to take the course in their fall semester.

PACE Peer Leaders assist staff facilitators in leading weekly sessions including facilitating in-class activities and support students in their academic and social transition.

Facilitators have the opportunity to recommend students they would like to work with in this capacity. If you know of a facilitator you would like to work with, please let them know your interest in working with them. If you are interested in working with any facilitator, you may apply as well.

Applications are due on April 13.
