Nominate a Colleague or Community Member for Service Awards

2021 brought moments of near-normalcy and reprieve, along with ongoing pandemic-related stress and challenges. These have been met with resilience, flexibility, courage, and ongoing excellence by Pacific University students, staff, and faculty.

Our community continues to step up to meet the changing needs and unexpected challenges that come our way with grace and spirit.

With the utmost pride and respect for the Pacific University community, we would like to announce that the nominations  for Pacific University’s service awards are now open.
