Now what?

Good question, right? Now more than ever we here at the Pace Center feel a call to serve. Civic engagement is vital. It is how we each participate in the life of our community to improve conditions for others and shape our future. Serving with others, standing up for what you believe, bridging divides and bringing people together are all part of civic engagement. When we actively connect with one another, listen to one another and work alongside each other we build trust, understanding, empathy and humility. When we engage, powerful things can happen.

What is your “now what?”
At the Pace Center we already see students engaging in a myriad of ways – attending national rallies, organizing events on campus, approaching their service efforts with new perspective and zeal. To inspire every member of the Princeton community to engage in a way that makes sense for them, we have created an interactive display on the 100 Level of the Frist Campus Center. Please share a note of how you are answering the “now what” question. How will you respond? What do you need? What’s next? We hope this display gives you an outlet to express where you are, what you need and how we can support each other. We’ll be soliciting notes through December 16. 

Tools and Resources
We have created a new [Now what?] section of the Pace Center website dedicated to providing information for the campus community to engage and mobilize, get resources and information and stay connected. We will share upcoming events, conferences and workshops, helpful articles and more. Consider also subscribing to our new monthly e-newsletter for regular updates and additional information.
