Name: Philip Martin.

Position: Program coordinator at the Pace Center. Working with undergraduate and graduate students to help them find or create civic engagement projects. Organizing the annual Civic Awareness and Action Series, which this year features lectures and discussions exploring the theme “The Just Society.”

Quote: “I was in AmeriCorps for two years, working on a variety of community service-learning projects in California, and before that I was a high school substitute teacher in New Jersey. I need to have a job I’m passionate about, and working at the Pace Center is a pretty good fit. I’m supporting students who are trying to make the world a better place, and I’m in an environment where I’m constantly challenged, always learning. I couldn’t ask for much more than that.”

Other interests: Learning to speak Spanish and to play the guitar. Traveling.
