Vocation and Service, A Salute to the Soul Journey

This year, the Pacifica Graduate Alumni Association (PGIAA) and Pacifica Graduate Institute (PGI) joined forces to celebrate and honor ‘The Journey’. Who better embodies community than current and past members of our Armed Forces (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, and Navy)? From the warriors who stormed the beaches at Normandy on D-Day to the brave men and women returning from Iraq and Afghanistan – our Veterans share a legacy of service that crosses generational lines and upholds the values upon which our Nation was founded: service to a cause greater than self.

We are proud to host this year’s tribute and welcome you to the campus of Pacifica Graduate Institute as we come together for our 2016 Annual Meeting!
