Susan has great pride in Pacific’s pharmacy students and is delighted to work with alumni and donors to create scholarships, network, fund research, and support important programming at the School. Her two sons, Matt and Chris, are current Pacific students—thanks in part to Susan’s stories of faculty and alumni success stories at the dinner table.

Learning happens when students feel motivated and supported. The School’s academic support programs foster an educational environment where students can achieve academic excellence. Our programs focus on working individually with students to help them develop personal learning strategies. We are also committed to helping our students engage with mentors. By connecting them to our powerful and influential alumni network and friends, we prepare each student to succeed academically and throughout their careers.

Experiential learning is the cornerstone of the programs offered at the School.

  • Our pharmacy students gain hands-on experience with patient care through health care outreach, such as the Medicare Part D Mobile Outreach Clinics.
  • Our physical therapy students partner with Kaiser Permanente and the San Joaquin County Office of Education to provide the Healthy Children Program to local schools with a focus on public health issues.
  • Literacy is fundamental to education and essential for both academic success and future career opportunities. The Department of Speech-Language Pathology established the Language Literacy Center to address the expanding role of speech-language pathologists to include literacy. This unique program provides our student clinicians to becomes subject matter experts in this area and to serve children in our underserved community.
