The PACE Multicultural Mentorship Program is a four-day orientation program for first-year students from historically underrepresented backgrounds. 

PACE stands for Preparation, Awareness, Community and Engagement. The goal of the program is to: Prepare students for their college experience at Augustana; help students have Awareness of their own identity and others; build a supportive Community and encourage Engagement with each other and Augustana.
