PACE is a Faculty Learning Community (FLC) formed based on the professional development needs assessment survey conducted by the Office of Faculty Affairs and Professional Development. The needs assessment covers a wide range of factors, ranging from research, mentoring, teaching pedagogy to professionalism. From the results, faculty members are grouped into a cohort with similar learning needs in their area of interest. Participants in PACE are offered an annual retreat followed by seminars and collaborative activities during the year to provide learning development of faculty at any rank. Engaging in an active, transdisciplinary learning communities promotes scholarship in the area of faculty interest. Evidence shows that FLCs provide mentoring and support for faculty to investigate, attempt, assess, and adopt new (to them) methods in their scholarly pursuit.
