The Pace Center for Civic Engagement is pleased to announce that two new staff members have joined our team. 

Meg Rooney joined the Pace Center in the spring as the Program Coordinator for Service Focus where she supports all facets of the Service Focus program. With experience in both higher education and marketing, Meg recruits and advises students, supports and engages with faculty, builds relationships with campus partners, and seeks to track and measure progress for Service Focus. Previously an instructor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Marymount Manhattan College and New York University, where she taught a variety of courses in communications arts, and an administrator in both the corporate and nonprofit sectors, Meg is looking forward to bringing Service Focus to life. 

“As students return to campus this fall I’m looking forward to hearing what they’ve learned during their summer service internship experiences – the first leg of their Service Focus journeys,” she said. “I’m excited to connect students with their peers and faculty mentors and continue to build on Princeton’s commitment to service and learning.”

Meg’s office is 201M in our Frist Campus Center location.

Geralyn Williams joined us this fall as a Program Coordinator where she oversees the center’s break programs, one-time service, graduate student engagement, and Month of Service. Geralyn comes from the University of San Diego where she served as a graduate assistant at the Mulvaney Center for Community, Awareness, and Social Action. She earned a master’s degree in higher education leadership from the University of San Diego’s School of Leadership and Education Sciences, and a bachelor’s degree in history from Rutgers University. Geralyn brings a passion for education and community and student engagement to her work at the Pace Center.

“My job as a program coordinator is to be a guide to others and to cultivate community and radical connection through engagement opportunities,” said Geralyn. “Programs like Breakout Princeton, Breakout Local, and Month of Service offer the campus community the chance to dive deep into community culture, tackle issues that affect us all, and build lasting relationships that allow us to give back intentionally and authentically.”

Geralyn’s office is 201H in our Frist Campus Center location.
