The keynote speaker is Pamela Eibeck, president of the University of the Pacific.
Eibeck is University of the Pacific’s 24th President and the first woman to hold the office. Eibeck’s presidency follows a distinguished career as a researcher, teacher, educational reformer and university administrator. She received her bachelor’s through doctoral degrees in mechanical engineering from Stanford University. An expert in heat transfer, President Eibeck conducted experimental research related to electronics cooling and thermal tiles used by NASA on the space shuttles. Her later work focused on engineering educational reform, including early use of multimedia in the classroom, curriculum development and most recently, ways to attract young people and women to the profession.
Eibeck received the Distinguished Engineering Award from the Society of Women Engineers in 1996 and the Boeing Outstanding Educator Award in 1999. She became a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers in 1998. President Eibeck’s vision for the University of the Pacific’s future includes enhancing Pacific’s academic enterprise, building connections between the University’s three cities, and serving our communities through partnerships at the local, national and global levels.
In addition to the keynote speaker, the Power of One Committee will be awarding its Seventh “Community Star” award to a member of our community who has demonstrated a passion and lifelong commitment to making a difference in the lives of those most in need.
The net proceeds of this event will be donated to United Way’s Community Council projects.
