Geoff Albert, Executive Director

Geoff Albert (he/him) holds an MFA in Studio Art and an MA in Organizational Leadership & Management, reflecting his commitment to both artistic pursuits and effective leadership. Geoff has an extensive track record of community service spanning several decades, beginning with his active engagement in various environmental and public health initiatives during the 1980s. Over the past two decades, he has focused on promoting education, community empowerment, and social justice.

While leading a tech team in the entertainment industry for twenty years, Geoff dedicated his free time to volunteering in the Pasadena community, specifically advocating for educational equity. His active involvement in city and school district task forces and his leadership roles as the VP of Legislation and Advocacy within the San Gabriel Valley's 300+ parent-teacher associations have garnered recognition from local and state officials and organizations.
In 2019, recognizing an opportunity to align his passion with his career, Geoff joined Pacific Oaks College Center for Community & Social Impact (CCSI) as a Community Engagement Specialist, leading the Collaborate PASadena initiative. His exceptional contributions eventually led him to assume the role of Director of CCSI while continuing to lead Collaborate PASadena. Geoff takes immense pride in the remarkable growth and achievements of Collaborate PASadena, which have surpassed the capacity of what Pacific Oaks could offer, and has since brought the organization to a new level of independence as a fiscally sponsored project under Community Initiatives.
