Mission | Berglund Center

The Berglund Center’s mission is to support multidisciplinary and multicollegiate creativity, scholarship, entrepreneurship and the development of leadership skills through the incubation of innovative ideas, products and services.

As an endowed Center, we provide resources and a designated location for turning ideas into a reality.

The mission of the Berglund Center is executed through the Inspired Ideas Competition, where student participants can win fellowships, awards and practical experience unique to launching a new start-up— but with the support and mentorship of experts and within a safe academic environment.

The Berglund Center is funded by an endowment from Pacific University alumni Drs. Mary and James Berglund of La Jolla, California.

The director of the center is J. Andy Soria, PhD.
