Our Mission

Our Mission

Founded in 1851, University of the Pacific has a long history of providing superior, student-centered learning experiences that integrate liberal arts and professional education. These programs train students for lasting achievement and responsible leadership in their communities.

Our graduates, like many of you, carry their knowledge way beyond their time at Pacific and use it to transform the greater community through various industries and engagements.

Pacific’s mission to educate and grow strong leaders is made possible through the help of loyal supporters like you.

With your support, Pacific students:

  • Train and serve the community through health and dental clinics, legal clinics and volunteer work.
  • Represent the athletic success and high-quality academics through intercollegiate competition, most recently rejoining the West Coast Conference.
  • Receive a rich blend of liberal arts and professional education from the highest quality educators and faculty.

Now you can join students in the impact they’re making in the greater community by supporting experiential higher education for years to come through your legacy gift for University of the Pacific.

A legacy is the most valuable gift a person can make, and leaving your legacy to Pacific means lives changed forever. You make it possible for outstanding students to receive scholarships. You provide for experiential learning opportunities that span the globe. You have built state-of-the-art facilities and learning environments where students are becoming the next generation of innovators. Many of Pacific’s past achievements, and those we will celebrate in the future, have been made possible by the legacies of our generous alumni and friends. Your gift matters to our students and the generations of students to come. Thank you.” — Pamela A. Eibeck, President
