Beyond Our Gates

Mike Klocke, Director

Through the Beyond Our Gates initiative, University of the Pacific is working collaboratively within the community to improve the social, educational and economic health of our region.

While we believe that the efforts of individual organizations have an important role in improving our community, it is clear that the deep-rooted challenges confronting the Central Valley require a collaborative approach. We recognize that the answer lies in education - helping children learn today so they can be successful and engaged citizens tomorrow. 

Embracing a collective impact model, the university is working alongside local individuals and organizations to prepare more of our young people for a successful future.
