Elizabeth City State University’s New Prevention, Awareness, and Cultural Education Center

Elizabeth City State University has launched a new center focused on diversity and inclusion on campus called the P.A.C.E. (Prevention, Awareness, and Cultural Education) Center. The new center is an expanded version of the university’s Women’s Center, so that it now also represents members of the LGBTQIA community and other groups on campus that enhance diversity.

The Women’s Center traditionally provided students with information on sexual assault, counseling, and well-being. The new P.A.C.E Center will continue that mission but with a focus on a broader range of services for the campus community. The center has already started to organize events and programs to educate students on diversity and inclusion efforts.

Dr. Crystal Terry was the director of the Women’s Center and will continue to serve in this role for the P.A.C.E. Center. She holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from Elizabeth City State University, a master’s degree in community health from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, and a Ph.D. in public health from Walden University.
