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.
