ImpactarrowA three-city university
In fulfilling our three-city vision, we continue to leverage our unique footprint in Stockton, Sacramento and San Francisco to launch new programs that meet the needs of today's — and tomorrow's — students. We have added more than a dozen new academic programs across our three campuses over the last two years addressing the critical need for leaders in the technology, health care, education, government and nonprofit sectors. An updated law curriculum is developing highly skilled professionals who are prepared for the rapidly changing legal market. And an ongoing refresh of our liberal arts foundation has produced new programs such as Media X. 

ImpactarrowGiving back for success
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, more than $8.5 million was contributed to establish scholarships and begin construction of new facilities, helping us to provide a welcoming and supporting learning and working environment that helps our students thrive academically.

ImpactarrowInclusive excellence
We want our students to thrive beyond academics and provide them with cultural skills and a global perspective. Pacific is making intentional efforts university-wide to foster a diverse and inclusive environment, including increased recruitment efforts and specialized student support services for international and underrepresented students, as well as improved hiring practices for faculty and staff to increase employee diversity. 

ImpactarrowBeyond our gates
Pacific is making a positive impact in our region, through tens of thousands of hours of community outreach, innovative new programs and the efforts of students, faculty and staff across the university. Over the past 10 years, student pharmacists have saved Medicare recipients upwards of $5.7 million in prescription drug costs while providing free health screenings at Mobile Medicare Clinics. Some of the most vulnerable and underserved in our communities are now receiving health care services through our Virtual Dental Home program, a revolutionary new care delivery system developed by Pacific's Center for Special Care. And McGeorge's legal clinics on important topics such as immigration law benefit the community while preparing students through meaningful experiential learning. 

ImpactarrowLooking to the future
But even as we make progress on the goals of our strategic plan, we are looking further ahead to evolve Pacific 2020 to help us more effectively deliver on our vision of becoming a leading Northern California university preparing graduates to live, learn and lead with purpose. We have already begun to take steps in these areas of focus: 

  • Create an environment that puts students first in order for them to thrive 
  • Provide an exceptional undergraduate 21st-century learning experience 
  • Become a leading educator in health care 

arrowarrowMomentum is building as we position University of the Pacific to have even greater impact on our students, our region and our world in 2017 and beyond.

Please enjoy this exciting look at the tremendous impact our students, faculty, staff and alumni are making.
