Congratulations to all the talented students, partner organisations and Macquarie staff who received awards at the 2022 Judyth Sachs PACE Prizes event on Tuesday the 6th of June.
Fifty-seven students, seven partner organisations, and five staff were awarded for their outstanding participation or development of the Professional and Community Engagement (PACE) work-integrated learning activities during 2022.
This year, PACE students, partners and staff participated in developing a library of videos to showcase the wide-ranging impact and experience of the PACE program.
In total, we have developed 18 videos which are an excellent resource for Macquarie students to reflect upon before they commence their PACE work-integrated learning activity and learn about the valuable contribution it can have to their future employment prospects.
