Fall 2015 Welcome Letter from Provost Pallavicini

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome back as we start AY15-16!  The energy of the campus has revved up with the start of the new academic year. This year brings us not only the excitement of new and returning students, but also new faculty, new academic programs, new initiatives and enhanced support systems for faculty, students and staff.

We look forward to sharing progress and accomplishments of the academic division as all of us work to position Pacific for an even brighter future. To maximize opportunities for communications, the Academic Administration will:

  • Publish newsletters twice monthly on the first and third Mondays
  • Provide an annual reflections and forward look on accomplishments and initiatives around its principles
  • Hold a monthly topical open conversation with the Provost and senior academic administration during the academic year. These will be held during Pacific Hour on the third Thursday of the month.

If you have ideas for other communication strategies, please email to A heartfelt thank you to all who are so very committed to making Pacific the place to be.  

Warm wishes,

Maria Pallavicini Provost
