The Centers housed within the College of the Pacific express our fundamental commitment to engaging students, faculty and the community beyond the classroom on matters of cultural, social and environmental significance.

Liaison Between Campus and Community


Our Centers enliven and enrich our campus life by hosting numerous events throughout the year, attended by University and community members alike. Events include:

  • Conferences
  • Guest speaker programs
  • Cultural presentations celebrating the arts and humanities

Our Centers further extend into the community by establishing regional development projects supported by student involvement.
