2014 rankings: University of the Pacific is diverse, smart and cool

2014 rankings: University of the Pacific is diverse, smart and cool

University of the Pacific awards more doctoral degrees to Asian American students than any other college in the country. Pacific alumni have the sixth-highest salaries among recent graduates who earned diplomas at West Coast colleges. And the university counts among the 15 most popular, 50 most beautiful, 50 smartest and 100 “coolest” campuses in the nation.

Those are just some of the rankings Pacific chalked up this year in assessments from popular magazines and websites, including Diverse Issues in Higher Education, Payscale.com, PolicyMic.com, Lumosity, Sierra Magazine and more.

“It’s wonderful when these rankings emphasize what we already know about Pacific,” said Provost Maria Pallavicini. “Pacific is a special place that prepares students for success through rigorous academics and superior teaching. While no ranking should be taken too seriously, we appreciate being recognized in so many areas.”

University of the Pacific launches Northern California’s first audiology doctoral program

University of the Pacific launches Northern California’s first audiology doctoral program

Californians who may have lost some hearing listening to the Grateful Dead at The Fillmore have new assurance that they'll be able to see an audiologist when they need one.

University of the Pacific is launching the first audiology doctorate program in Northern California, one that is expected to educate nearly half of the estimated 55 new audiologists who will be needed each year to keep pace with anticipated statewide demand.

The program will be offered at Pacific's new downtown San Francisco campus at 155 Fifth Street, where the university is also opening new audiology patient clinics. When fully staffed, the state-of-the-art clinics will offer comprehensive diagnostic and rehabilitation services to some 3,500 adults and children each year.

California now has only one other program that grants a doctorate in audiology (Au.D.) degree, a joint program of San Diego State and UC San Diego that turns out about 10 audiologists a year.

Former Tiger Tennis ace helps celebrate new tennis complex

Former Tiger Tennis ace helps celebrate new tennis complex

Thirty years ago, Eve Zimmerman threw herself on newly resurfaced tennis courts at University of the Pacific – and kissed them. That passion brought her back to her alma mater recently to help celebrate the groundbreaking for what is planned as one of the finest tennis facilities on the West Coast, the Eve Zimmerman Tennis Center.

Made possible by a $1.5 million gift from Zimmerman, the Eve Zimmerman Tennis Center will include 12 courts, a 5,500-square-foot clubhouse, covered player benches, and a new electronic scoreboard. It will occupy a portion of the footprint of the former Amos Alonzo Stagg Memorial Stadium.

“This facility will enable Pacific tennis players to shine as Tigers should,” said Zimmerman, who played for Pacific from 1980 to 1984 and went on to become a world-ranked professional player. Returning to Pacific for Homecoming, she will be making her first visit to the campus since she graduated.
