Internet & Online Communications

Pacific University uses a variety of online communications to connect and engage with the diverse Pacific community, our internal stakeholders and our external audiences. In order to achieve this, we help educate staff, faculty and students on available resources and provide university brand guidelines for using each of these communication channels. Following these guidelines will assist in creating more engaging, actionable content that resonates with various audiences.

The Office of Marketing & Communications maintains the overall style, branding and messaging of all communication efforts across the university. Compliance with university guidelines and brand standards ensures a better overall experience for all of our audiences.

In August 2014, a new website was launched, allowing different audiences to explore the website with its feature-rich content and dynamic design.

Curious about the current state of the website? Check out our post-launch website update.
