Pace Initiative for Connecting Mind & Health

Now Accepting Applications!

The GVSU Pace Initiative represents an innovative approach to integrating student well-being, health, and mental health issues into academic coursework. The Pace Initiative for Connecting Mind and Health, named for Dr. Diana Pace, builds principles of wholistic education creating collaboration between faculty and campus resource professionals as partners in incorporating well-being, health, and mental health issues into the classroom. This approach pairs academic learning with reflection, encouraging students to examine their own experiences, and creates connections on campus between faculty, staff, and students.

Faculty have the opportunity to engage with the Initiative as Pace Faculty Associates or as Pace Conversation Group Participants. Faculty also have the opportunity to engage in this project through Pace Initiative Grants.

If you'd like to get involved with the Pace Initiative, please visit our Pace Initiative for Connecting Mind and Health webpage for more information and for links to our online application.

Apply for the Pace Initiative today!
