Pacific has a long tradition of public service with students, faculty and staff making an impact in our communities through classroom and volunteer experiences, including:
Pharmacy: Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy students assisted 811 beneficiaries at a virtual Medicare Part D clinic in 2020. Also, 196 first-year PharmD students received immunization training and certification, readying them to assist in the administration of the flu vaccine and the COVID-19 vaccine.
Law Clinics: Since March 2020, McGeorge School of law students have served an estimated 100 elder and health law clients, 40 bankruptcy clients, 122 immigration clients and 83 charged with federal crimes. They helped mediate 16 civil rights disputes between prisons and prison inmates and worked on nine pieces of legislation.
Dental clinics: Dugoni School of Dentistry students and faculty served more than 17,200 patients and managed more than 77,330 patient visits across San Francisco and Union City clinics over 2019-2020.
Beyond Our Gates: With a focus on literacy and learning, this community outreach effort has seen significant gains in helping students in San Joaquin County succeed. In the 2019 Beyond Our Gates Every Day Counts Attendance Challenge, more than 43,000 K-12 students had perfect attendance in the contest period.
