Faculty and Staff Wellness Resource Guide

The following pages were created to support your well-being. We are each different, yet we all have so much in common.

Though this is not an exhaustive page of all resources that can assist you through the COVID-19/Coronavirus situation, we hope that there is something here for everyone. Be aware that most of the Additional Resources links will take you to websites outside of the Pacific University system. They are not endorsed by the university and are simply provided to showcase a range of accessible information. We encourage you to explore more wellness resources on your own as well.
