The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with University of the Pacific in the search for a Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations.

The Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations is an integral role within the Development Department. The role leads all corporate and foundation relationships and works closely with University administration, faculty, and development colleagues.

This position will have the opportunity to build and grow a department that has a track record of accomplishments.

University of the Pacific is an independent, coeducational university serving nearly 6,300 students on three campuses in Stockton, San Francisco, and Sacramento. Pacific has earned widespread recognition for its deep commitment to teaching and learning, its history of innovation, and the accomplishments of its 60,000 alumni.

Drawing on its rich legacy, Pacific is a student-focused, comprehensive educational institution that produces outstanding graduates who are prepared for personal and professional success. Its student body thrives in Pacific's small classes and dynamic cultural environment, while its distinguished alumni are transforming their communities every day.

Pacific enjoys national recognition for its leadership in higher education, consistently ranked among the best national universities and as a "Best Value" by U.S. News & World Report and Princeton Review. U.S. News also ranks Pacific very high (No.15) for ethnic diversity. The Economist and The Brookings Institution have ranked Pacific the No. 3 best value college or university in California. It is among the top 10 schools in the nation whose graduates exceed expected earnings, according to an analysis by the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce. 

Under the stewardship of Pacific's current president, Pamela A. Eibeck, Pacific is expanding its presence in Sacramento and San Francisco and implementing a bold new strategic vision, Pacific 2020. This vision capitalizes on Pacific's highly regarded academic programs, formative student-teacher relationships, and multiple locations to position Pacific to become the best teaching-focused university in California.

A Bachelor’s degree and five years of progressively responsible and successful work experience with foundation and/or corporate fundraising are required for this position.
