Community & Connections: Inspiring Resilience & Hope

2018 has been a challenging year in the Santa Barbara area. The destructive Thomas Fire, ultimately the largest in the history of the state, followed by devastating mudslides, threatened both Pacifica Campuses in the early months of the year. Staff, faculty, and students were evacuated multiple times and for weeks on end as the community reeled under the onslaught of these natural disasters. Pacifica Alumni Association’s signature Coming Home event for 2018 was postponed—twice!—along with numerous classes and events. We are delighted to invite you to join Pacifica Graduate Alumni Association (PGIAA) and Pacifica Graduate Institute (PGI) for our new offering, “Coming Home 2018: Community & Connections – Inspiring Resilience and Hope.”
