Community-based learning courses, also known as AOK1s, are a three-credit Civic Engagement and Public Values requirement of Pace’s core curriculum. AOK1s offer students an exciting opportunity to put what they’ve learned in the classroom into action. In community-based learning courses, Pace students get first-hand experience serving the needs of communities in New York and beyond. These unique educational experiences challenge students to serve the community, while developing a rigorous intellectual understanding of their personal commitments, and obligations as citizens in a democratic society.
