Pacific University College of Education Alumni

   Pacific University's long history of teacher education spans nearly 100 years. A strong sense of community, outstanding faculty, and comprehensive and innovative programs allows us to enjoy a national reputation for enhancing lives wherever our graduates may be found.

   We're proud of the many fine educators who began their careers at Pacific University, and we value their important contributions to both the University and the profession of teaching.

   The College of Education Alumni Council (COEAC) seeks to continue this important tradition. If you would like to stay connected to Pacific University, the College, and fellow alumni while helping future generations of educators, consider joining the College of Education Alumni Council.

   The COEAC welcomes new members and encourages creative ideas for collaborating with the College of Education to encourage future and current teachers, and to transform the profession of teaching.
