College of the Pacific

Providing the tools for life
and building the knowledge required to seize it.

The broad scope of a liberal arts degree instills in graduates curiosity and confidence, guides them to become independent thinkers, bequeaths them with superior communication and quantitative skills, and makes them skeptics of received wisdom that hasn’t been tested, all of which prepares them to weather the vagaries of the modern world.

In this comprehensive campaign, Leading with Purpose, the College of the Pacific aims to increase our support for student-centered learning experiences that will help our students graduate with a sense of vocation, whether it be in advanced study or prepared for that first job, one they are suited for, passionate about, and qualified to enter.
