Mission and Core Values

“Quakers believe there is a light in each person, and that is to be honored in everyone.” —Margie Young, Pacific Oaks Graduate ’72

 

Mission Statement

Grounded in its social justice heritage, Pacific Oaks College prepares students to be culturally intelligent agents of change serving diverse communities in the fields of human development, education, and related family studies.

 

Core Values

Informed by Quaker principles, Pacific Oaks Children’s School was built to bring an inclusive approach to early childhood education—teaching children to respect and embrace the differences that make others unique. Pacific Oaks College has expanded on this progressive approach to inform their approach to the fields of Early Childhood Education, Human Development, Cultural and Family Psychology, and Organizational Leadership.

Guided by four core values—respect, diversity, social justice, and inclusion—Pacific Oaks College has helped graduates change the world.
