“To accelerate high impact social entrepreneurs and enterprises through an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving.”
-IDG Mission Statement
The Integrated Development Group (IDG) (formally the Integrated Development Program) is a student-driven, management consulting group sponsored by the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. Founded in 2010, IDG seeks to accelerate high-impact social entrepreneurs and enterprises through an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving.
The idea for IDG came out of the needs expressed by non-profit and sustainable development organizations for increased access to business services that help them to fulfill their missions. Today, 95% of non-profit organizations say that their social impact would grow with the support of pro-bono assistance. Thus, by offering pro-bono services to our clients, we aim to assist in the development and future sustainability of these organizations.
IDG is comprised of a skilled team of University of the Pacific students who provide assistance to organizations through the completion of management consulting services.
The student consultants represent a wide range of academic disciplines across Pacific’s seven colleges and are deeply committed to the betterment of our local, national, and international communities.The student consultants of IDG are familiar with the topics of social entrepreneurship, domestic and international community development, and possess specific skills from various backgrounds such as business, international relations, political science, engineering, economics, and the health sciences. IDG is sponsored by the Eberhardt School of Business and is closely mentored and advised by its faculty.
