Center for Awareness, Compassion, and Engagement

The ACE Center empowers girls and women to learn, to lead, and to effect positive change in the community both locally and globally. 

Through ACE-facilitated experiences, students build skills and graduate with twenty-first century learning competencies. The guiding principles of reciprocal learning (share and learn), partnership, and ethical leadership are central to developing competencies in the areas of cultural understanding, communication and collaboration, assessment and evaluation, and problem-solving.


Visit the ACE Center portal to learn more about these experiences.

The ACE Center facilitates experiential learning through several frameworks:

    • community action endeavors

    • global investigations

    • internships

    • social entrepreneurship challenges
    • hands-on workshops

    • mentoring programs

    • community-wide discussions and collaborations

As students learn through an arc of assigned and selected experiential opportunities they develop skills and competencies that inform their practice daily as women leading and women learning.
