Impact on Facilities

University of the Pacific's Stockton's campus has long inspired students, faculty and the community with its beauty, intimacy and warmth. Equally inspiring have been the University's state-of-the-art facilities, which have provided ideal teaching, research and learning environments for all. Pacific owes much of its success to visionary donors who have helped build the University's libraries, athletic fields, arenas and technology centers. Taken together, these best-in-class facilities give Pacific a major competitive advantage over peer institutions.

The John T. Chambers Technology Center, which opened in Fall 2010, symbolizes Pacific's commitment to superior teaching, learning and cutting-edge technology. This state-of-the-art facility, made possible by a generous lead gift by namesake John T. Chambers, chairman and CEO of technology behemoth Cisco Systems Inc., has many distinguished features, including seven research, teaching and project labs, two student study areas and a sophisticated studio classroom and lab. In 2011, the John T. Chambers Technology Center received a LEED Gold Certificate for its sustainability features.

The Alex and Jeri Vereschagin Alumni House, which opened in Summer 2011, is a special place where University of the Pacific's more than 55,000 alumni call home when they return to the Stockton campus. The Alex and Jeri Vereschagin Alumni House also serves as a beautiful dining room or lecture hall. This stately building, located at the heart of the University, was built entirely by donor gifts, including a generous $2-million lead donation by the Vereschagins. More than 700 members of the Pacific Family contributed to the Alumni House, proving that a group of visionary men and women can make a profound difference.
