PACE Learning Community

The Proficiency in American Culture and English (PACE) Learning Community is designed for nonnative speakers of English to help them accelerate through to ENGL 100/105. PACE students enroll as a group in a set sequence of classes that focus on English composition, grammar and American history.

Students can expect additional support from instructors, information about programs, services and how to transfer, and a designated ESOL Counselor.
