    Pacific University presents the 2024 Faculty and Staff Honors & Awards Ceremony. Please join us in honoring your colleagues Wednesday, May 8, in McCready Hall on the Forest Grove Campus. 

    Assisting at Commencement on May 18 is a great opportunity to celebrate the Class of 2024! The Commencement Planning Team is still seeking 10 more Boxers to lend a hand. The commencement committee has jobs for everyone, from handing out programs and showing guests to their seats to driving guests around in a golf cart. 

    Thank you to all who voted in the recent Staff Senate elections. We are pleased to announce the following nine staff members who have been elected for a two-year term beginning July 1.
