University of the Pacific's Center for Community Involvement
Mission – The Center for Community Involvement (CCI) is a student-centered learning environment that provides quality, innovative programming which, through student leaders, forms a link between the campus and the community, where evolving programs provide the spark for education, action and service.
Vision – The CCI will provide and model an inclusive community where students from diverse cultures and backgrounds can find acceptance and support as they develop leadership capacities and come to a greater sense of identity in mind, body and spirit. Students serve and empower each other, involving the campus and the community, as they bring learning to life.
Purpose - The CCI’s purpose is to inspire, support and prepare students to successfully address their concerns through service to the community and the society in which they live.
Heritage – The CCI (formerly AYC) has been an integral part of the University of the Pacific’s history for more than a century. Thousands of students, staff and board members have influenced countless lives within the Stockton community through various clubs, organizations, and activities the AYC has sponsored. Most importantly, the AYC has always been a place where everyone belongs. In 2004 the Anderson Y programs formally joined the University of the Pacific under the Division of Student Life. This is an exciting time as the next chapter in Pacific’s connection to our Stockton community is written.
