The Center for Community Outreach at Dyson College
Every student at Pace must take at least one “service learning” course, a class that uses experiential learning as part of its curriculum. Those service opportunities are coordinated through the Center for Community Outreach at Dyson College. However, the Center for Community Outreach at Dyson College also provides service opportunities outside of coursework and serves as a nexus for community building, volunteerism, and political awareness/action. You can even sign up for activities online. Find out more information here.
As soon as your second semester freshman year, you can begin preparing for an internship run through Pace’s Career Services. Why is this important? In an increasingly competitive job market, one thing that helps to distinguish candidates from one another is the number and quality of their internships. Career services works with students on developing résumés and practicing interviewing techniques to help maximize their chances of getting an internship. They also help students plan and prepare for their long term career goals. Career Services regularly brings employers from small, mid-sized, and large companies to recruit Pace students.
