What is the PACE CENTER?
SHSU's Professional and Academic Center for Excellence (PACE) is dedicated to providing professional development for administration, faculty, staff, and students. Using programs and services founded on evidence-based teaching and leadership strategies, their ultimate goal is effective student learning and development.
The services offered by PACE include several that are either incorporated into the QEP:
- The annual Teaching and Learning Conference in August
- Teaching Innovation Grants
- Coordination of faculty cohorts participating in the ACUE Course in Effective Teaching Practices
- Writing in the Disciplines program
The PACE center will serve as the central hub of the QEP initiatives. Currently operated by a single half-time faculty director, the PACE center will expand with QEP resources to include two more half-time faculty associate directors, all devoting time and effort to promoting and directing the QEP components.
