We are the The Pilipinx American Collegiate Endeavor, or simply "PACE". Since the formation of PACE in 1967, and 1968-69 SFSU student strike shortly after, our purpose is to promote a clear understanding of, and involvement in the political, social, economic, educational, and cultural aspects of the Pilipina/o community by creating new channels of communication and discussion. We continue to provide support for the ongoing struggle of self-determination of Pilipino Americans, the United States of America, and other peoples worldwide, as well as the continued opposition to colonialism, racial hierarchy, sexism, and other forms of bigotry.
The Pilipinx American Collegiate Endeavor, takes esteemed responsibility in providing academic support to our general members; promoting critical consciousness and self determination; and the preservation of Pilipina/o American culture, while offering a safe space for expression. As we continue to move forward, we aspire to cultivate unity and leadership potential in our peers through education and active involvement in the community.
