2017 PACE prize winners announced


The annual Professor Judyth Sachs PACE Prizes were awarded last Wednesday to 25 students, for outstanding achievement in PACE (Professional and Community Engagement) activities in 2017.

With Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) Kevin Jameson acting as MC, the award night saw over 130 attendees gather in MUSE, with Macquarie staff joining with PACE partners to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of the prize-winning students.

The awards highlighted the positive impact PACE students had on the wider community, as well as the significant career-building skills they gained from participating in the program.

PACE Academic and Program Director Lindie Clark said she was thrilled with the incredible work undertaken by the 2017 winners and told them that reading through their prize applications was the favourite thing about her job.

“To understand the extraordinary work and commitment you put into your projects, the incredible learning you take out of them, and the contribution you make to our industry and community partners is absolutely delightful,” Lindie said.
