About Us

Pacific University is a welcoming and diverse learning community dedicated to creating personal learning opportunities for our students. We offer a unique combination of undergraduate, graduate and professional programs in the liberal arts and sciences, education, business and healthcare. We work to inspire students to think, care, create, and pursue justice in our world.

Though our campuses are in Oregon, we have shared a close relationship with Hawai‘i for several decades. About one in five of our incoming freshman students are from Hawai‘i, and more than 6 percent of our nearly 22,000 alumni live in Hawai‘i. Our students and alumni — and their families — are important pieces of the Boxer Nation. The most visible aspect of this relationship is obvious in the Nā Haumāna O Hawai‘i student club and its annual lu’au, which is a combined effort of countless students, families and friends.

In January 2013, we took that relationship a step farther by opening our office in Honolulu. With a dedicated location and staff in Hawai‘i, we look forward to connecting with and supporting even more prospective and current students, family, friends and alumni.
