Why Pacific?

Pacific University is a nurturing educational environment committed to inspiring students who think, care, create, and pursue justice in the world.

The first chartered university in Oregon, Pacific has a rich legacy of offering education and advancement to underserved populations. Today, we provide undergraduate, graduate and professional programs in the liberal arts and sciences, business, education, health professions and optometry, helping our students make a difference in their community.

The Boxer Nation includes more than 3,800 students and 25,000 alumni around the world — as well as nearly 1,000 employees in Oregon (and a few in Hawai‘i, too). The Pacific University community is one of belonging, respect, and recognition of individual worth, whose members share a commitment to university goals and to one another.

We invite you to join this family. Enjoy competitive benefits and a caring working environment as you expand your knowledge of your discipline, support our students, and transform your understanding of your place in the world.
