Human Resources

At Pacific University, excellent people create an excellent educational environment for students.

Pacific is known as a “high-touch” environment: Students choose Pacific for the warm, nurturing relationships they find here. Our faculty and staff are an integral part of creating that nurturing environment, and they are valued members of the Boxer family.

In the Office of Human Resources, we strive to share and provide knowledge, support and advocacy to faculty and staff, as well as students and the community. We aim to be business partners, good listeners, committed advocates for employees and the university, stewards of university policies and procedures, and active community members.

Please Note:

To practice healthy social distancing, the Human Resources office is following a By Appointment Only policy. Until further notice, in-person office inquiries/drop-ins will not be accepted. The size of the Human Resources office does not allow for normal daily traffic and recommended distancing. For those who wish to submit a doctor’s note, they should be scanned and emailed to Tracy King at For other Human Resources needs, please contact the appropriate team member.

For those not utilizing direct deposit, to ensure that all employees are paid as quickly and conveniently as possible, all paper paychecks will be mailed directly to the employees' home addresses on file in Paycom. Until further notice, there will be no pickup option for paper paychecks. All employees who do not already utilize direct deposit are encouraged to add direct deposit information to their Paycom accounts or confirm the accuracy of their address on file in Paycom.
