1.1.1.c Aspirations

Pacific, where innovation is tradition‚Ķ While never wavering from our traditions and core values, we know that aspirations help us articulate our vision for the future.

These aspirations will guide students, staff, faculty, and alumni as we strive for excellence. 

We aspire to broaden our culture of innovation, exploration, and creativity.

Complex problems often require multidisciplinary approaches to solutions and collaborative learning will bring together our teacher/scholars and students from different disciplines to find meaningful answers.

We will support our teacher/scholar community so our vibrant scholars, researchers, and artists continue to bring distinction to themselves and the University.

We will more fully integrate liberal and professional learning and will balance skills, knowledge, integrity, ethics, vocation, and avocation in the curricula and learning experiences.

We will be increasingly service centered. The creation of a User-friendly environment with transparent and efficient services, systems, and technologies will give learners increased time to focus on the pursuit of knowledge as well as academic and social development.

We aspire to be more fully engaged with the changing world and will broaden and strengthen connections to Pacific.

We will advance sustainability through learning, practice, and collaboration with local communities by considering our environmental, social, and economic impact.

Because practice invigorates learning, students will apply their knowledge through an enhanced and more diverse set of experiential learning opportunities.

We will reinforce learning as a lifelong process and will augment professional learning opportunities and nurture partnerships with alumni.

We will pursue diversity to transform and enliven our community, curricula, programs, and policies.

We aspire to prepare leaders who understand, affirm, and utilize their global orientation to fulfill our obligation to intercultural understanding in our interdependent world.
