Event Description

Pacifica Graduate Alumni Association (PGIAA) announces its second annual Coming Home celebration, “Vocation and Service, A Journey of the Soul.” The Association and Pacifica Graduate Institute will join forces to celebrate and honor the contributions of current and past members of our Armed Forces. “Coming Home 2016” will be held at Pacifica Graduate Institute, 801 Ladera Lane, Santa Barbara, CA 93108 from Thursday, January 28 through Sunday, January 31, 2016.

The opening events are a welcome and tribute to veterans across the United States of America and are free and open to the community. “We are proud to host this year’s tribute and welcome you to our campuses,” said Dianne Travis-Teague, Director of Alumni Relations. Our veterans are called to embark on service to a cause greater than self. In the course of their journeys, they learn many things. Civil society needs to create spaces where we can learn about their journeys and welcome them home. Highlights will include special presentations by Pacifica alumnus, Eduard Uzumeckis, PhD (2011 Myth). A special screening of Ground Operations will be presented. This documentary film is part of a social action campaign that champions the growing network of combat veterans who are transitioning into careers as sustainable farmers, ranchers and artisan foods producers. Dulanie Ellis, the filmmaker will host a panel following the screening.

Other special events include a gala reception, a faculty lecture series and an alumni/ae authors special showcase. The Chancellor’s Reception will be highlighted by the presentation of the Wendy Davee Award for Service and the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence.

The 2016 Faculty Lecture Series will feature Elizabeth Nelson, Jennifer Selig, Matthew Bennett, Glen Slater and Dennis Patrick Slattery. In addition, the Pacifica Bookstore will co-sponsor the second annual Alumni Authors Spotlight, a spectacular showcase of publications by Pacifica Alumni/ae. The authors will share a brief synopsis of their work and sign copies of their books.

”2016 is also the beginning of Pacifica Graduate Institute’s 40th Anniversary Celebration,” said Dr. Stephen Aizenstat, Founding President and Chancellor. “We are honored to launch our celebrations during the Alumni Associations’ Coming Home weekend. Forty years have passed since the idea that would become Pacifica Graduate Institute was birthed in Isla Vista, in a two-room apartment next to the University of California Santa Barbara.”
