Strategic Investment Fund

University of the Pacific has established a Strategic Investment Fund (SIF) to allow us to invest in critical strategic efforts over the next few years.  The SIF will help Pacific change with the times, without relying on steep tuition increases.  The fund will be used for projects or initiatives that will lead to the accomplishment of Pacific 2020's four strategies: building our academic strength and reputation, pursuing new students in our three cities, preparing our students for success, and developing organizational capacity.  Once accomplished, these strategies will enable the University to fulfill its 2020 vision of a transformative educational experience for all students.
