Pacific Fellows

Pacific Fellows Program

EmPac brings leaders to UC San Diego from around the globe to engage in dialogue, research and teaching with students, alumni, faculty and the San Diego community.

Fellows are drawn from remarkable scholars and policy-makers who shape strategy in their own countries in government, the private sector and academia, and provide valuable insights into how economic and political systems are evolving.

Fellows Activities

While in residence, each Fellow fulfills a number of responsibilities. Their events and interactions may vary based on interest and length of stay, but each Fellow will:

  • Collaborate with a faculty partner on a project or initiative
  • Mentor students informally or in a classroom setting
  • Speak at a public program and guest lecture at community events
  • Engage with other appropriate UC San Diego departments
  • Collaborate with the broader San Diego regional community, and business, government or nonprofit leaders
  • Interact with our supporters and local community

Having completed its seventh year, EmPac has now hosted 57 Fellows from 19 different countries. Each Fellow has brought a wealth of diverse knowledge to the San Diego community.
