Mission | Berglund Center

The mission of the Berglund Center for Innovation is to support and develop student-imagined innovations. As an endowed Center, it provides resources and a designated location for creative innovation to convert ideas into reality.

The Berglund Center for Innovation inspires students to blend their Pacific University education with their original ideas through a hands-on creative process.

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.
