Pacifica Graduate Institute Hosted its 2015 Commencement Ceremonies over Memorial Day Weekend

Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) May 26, 2015

Pacifica Graduate Institute hosted its 2015 commencement ceremonies during the Memorial Day weekend, celebrating the outstanding accomplishments of its graduating students. The ceremonies occurred on Pacifica’s picturesque Ladera Lane campus, located in the Santa Barbara foothills. Graduates, family, friends, faculty, and alumni traveled to Santa Barbara from all over the globe to attend these special events.

The 2015 commencement ceremonies featured the traditional Pacifica faculty procession into Barrett Center, where three ceremonies were held, two on Saturday and one on Sunday. In his welcome address to each graduating class, Dr. Stephen Aizenstat, Chancellor and Founding President, stated, “This day belongs to our graduates, their accomplishments and to the families and friends that are here to rejoice. Knowing that these graduates will bring their Pacifica experience into the world makes us proud.” Dr. Aizenstat continued, “This graduation weekend has very special significance for Pacifica Graduate Institute. We are on the eve of our 40th Anniversary year.”

Following each ceremony, Dianne Travis-Teague, Director of Alumni Relations, and Pacifica Alumni presented the new graduates with gifts to celebrate their momentous achievements and welcomed them to the Pacifica Graduate Institute Alumni Association.

For most graduates, commencement was the culmination of life-long dreams. During the ceremonies, graduates shared heart-felt gratitude for their rigorous academic experience at Pacifica and for the opportunity to take their life’s work further into the world, carrying forward Pacifica’s motto, animae mundi colendae gratia - for the sake of tending soul in and of the world. Masters and Ph.D. degrees were granted in the areas of Counseling Psychology, Mythological Studies, Engaged Humanities, Depth Psychology, and Clinical Psychology.

With deep acknowledgement and respect, Dr. Thyonne Gordon, Chair of Pacifica Graduate Institute’s Board of Trustees, recognized the students who graduated, on behalf of the Board of Trustees. Dr. Aizenstat presented special awards to faculty, and recognized faculty members who recently achieved emeritus status.

The commencement ceremonies were recorded through a live webcast which is available through the Pacifica’s website at 2015 Commencement. We invite you to celebrate with us and view these special ceremonies.

The Pacifica community looks forward to celebrating Pacifica Graduate Institute’s 40th Anniversary in 2016. For more information, contact Heidi Townshend, Director of External Affairs, at Pacifica Graduate Institute: 805-879-7374 or htownshend(at)pacifica(dot)edu.
