Pacific University Community Awards
The Pacific University Community Awards recognize special individuals who contribute to our community in extraordinary ways that support and advance the mission of the university. The purpose of these awards is to provide an opportunity for Pacific to say, “thank you” to some of our closest friends, advocates and community members, and to publicly recognize their service at the annual Honors & Awards Ceremony.
University Service Award
The University Service Award recognizes individuals who have contributed to Pacific University by providing a substantial amount of time and/or support, which benefits the University beyond that normally expected of a board member, administrator, staff member, or other friend of the University. This award is designed for a person who is not a member of the faculty of Pacific University, but should be someone who has evidenced a sincere and long-time interest in Pacific.
Community Service Award
This award is designed for a person, family, or organization not officially associated with the university. The award should be given in recognition of a specific contribution, financial or otherwise, which advances the cultural and/or educational development of the university or the City of Forest Grove.
