Oldest Pacific alum, 107, gives $300,000 days before his death

Oldest Pacific alum, 107, gives $300,000 days before his death

George Knoles, an esteemed historian whose family played a pivotal role in University of the Pacific’s past, contributed to future students’ success by giving $303,000 toward a graduate student scholarship at his alma mater just days before his death on Aug. 27 at the age of 107.

The Barker-Knoles Endowed Scholarship, established in 2000 by Knoles and his late wife, Amandalee Barker, provides scholarships for female graduate students in history and the humanities at University of the Pacific. Barker also graduated from Pacific.

“We are honored by the Knoles family’s great legacy at University of the Pacific,” said Pacific President Pamela Eibeck. “George and Amandalee deeply believed that women should enjoy the same academic opportunities as their male counterparts. They opened the door for more women to pursue graduate education by funding a scholarship endowment that will help students at Pacific for many decades to come.”

University of the Pacific launches Bay Area's first music therapy program

University of the Pacific launches Bay Area's first music therapy program

Until now, becoming a music therapist in California has meant competing for limited seats each year in music therapy programs at University of the Pacific’s Stockton campus or Cal State Northridge, the only two institutions statewide that have been accredited by the American Music Therapy Association.

But starting next fall, Pacific will launch the Bay Area’s first music therapy program at the university’s new state-of-the-art San Francisco campus at Fifth and Mission. Applications are being accepted now for the Music Therapy Equivalency Program.

McGeorge students make law – and history

McGeorge students make law – and history

Revenge porn victims can get offensive material taken off the Internet using a pseudonym. Child care centers can consider job applicants' arrest warrants in hiring decisions. Prisoners can seek a new trial if the scientific evidence that convicted them is later discredited. And police will get training to recognize signs of elder abuse.

Californians won these new rights and protections thanks to four bills developed by students at Pacific McGeorge School of Law and signed into law by Gov. Brown.  

"It is rewarding to have our students not only studying the law on the books in the nation's most important state capital, but also helping to put those laws on the books," said Francis J. Mootz III, dean and professor of law at McGeorge.
