Upcoming Pacific Leadership Fellows

The Pacific Leadership Fellows program brings leaders to UC San Diego from around the Pacific region to engage in dialogue, research and teaching with students, alumni, faculty and the San Diego community.

Residencies may range from one to four weeks, with the occasional longer or shorter stay. Each fulfills a number of responsibilities, and their events and interactions vary based on the fellow’s expertise and length of stay.

UC San Diego continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19, working closely with local, state and national officials. We are busy planning the visits of the next outstanding cohort of fellows while working diligently to protect our campus community.
