Diversity

At Pacific University, diversity is one of the five pillars of our mission.

Our students, faculty and staff come from all over the world.

While most of our students do come from the Pacific Northwest, almost one in five undergraduates hails from Hawai‘i, and we have students from nearly ever state and from more than 20 countries. Our alumni represent Pacific University in more than 40 countries.

Our students enjoy experiencing worldwide cultures through the friends they meet on our campuses and through our rich international study and service opportunities.

In addition, campus clubs such as the Nā Haumāna O Hawai‘i, Hispanic Heritage Student Association and Black Student Union help students feel even more at home at Pacific.

But we also know that diversity is about much more than ethnicity or geography. We believe that exposure to a rich diversity of ideas is critical to the education and growth of all people, and we value the unique experiences and viewpoints of all of our community members.
