Welcome to the Jacoby Center for Public Service and Civic Leadership

Jacoby Center Mission

The Jacoby Center seeks to strengthen the links between Pacific's campuses and their communities by encouraging effective partnerships; cultivating public service and civic leadership; and engaging students and faculty in the world beyond our gates.

Student Involvement

Students are encouraged to join the faculty scholars in study and undertake public service that makes a real difference in the community. Through research projects, internships, and other experiences provided by the Jacoby Center, students learn to study social and political issues systematically, analyze the way civic leaders attempt to resolve such issues, and assume leadership in organizing and implementing solutions.

Contact Information

The Jacoby Center is located in rooms 241 and 242 of the Wendell Phillips Center on Pacific's Stockton campus.
