Through the U.N. Millennium Fellowship, three Pace students are innovating the way food insecurity is addressed on campus with the Fare Trade program.
Are you getting enough rest? Are you eating all right? What about exercise—are you doing that? Sorry to nag, but we want you well. We want you feeling great—bodily, emotionally, and spiritually.
On Wednesday, February 8, all three Pace University campuses will host the inaugural Wellbeing Fair, featuring 70+ info tables hosted by members of the Pace Community and our neighbors, in celebration of Pace adopting the Okanagan Charter, an international framework for promoting wellness on campuses globally.
“We are so thrilled that Pace will be signing the Okanagan Charter to join a higher education consortium committed to being health-promoting institutions,” says Todd Smith-Bergollo, senior associate dean for students and Wellbeing Fair co-chair. “This brings together our university’s sustainability, DEI, and wellness goals and allows us to build more momentum toward reaching these goals.”
The Wellbeing Fair will be inclusive of the entire campus community and provide all people with an array of well-being information and activities. This is part of Pace University’s wellness strategic plan which integrates an approach to physical, mental, and financial well-being for a diverse community of students, faculty, and staff.
