Students walking through the Pleasantville campus


Pace is dedicated to supporting the wellbeing of our community and to demonstrate this commitment we have signed on as a proud member of the Okanagan Charter, an international charter for health-promoting universities and colleges. The Charter outlines two calls-to-action:

  • To embed health into all aspects of our campus culture.
  • To lead health promotion action and collaboration locally and globally

These calls-to-action are based on the eight dimensions of wellbeing: Emotional, Environmental, Financial, Intellectual, Occupational, Physical, Social, and Spiritual. To that end, here you will find a comprehensive listing of internal and external resources in support of the overall health and wellbeing of our students, faculty, and staff.

We hope you'll take advantage of the resources and events designed to support your wellbeing.

If you are interested in becoming involved in, or learning about, our initiatives, or have questions or ideas, please reach out to me.

Your wellbeing is our priority.

Sue Maxam, Ed.D.
Assistant Provost for Wellness
