College of Optometry Dean Jennifer Coyle ‘90, OD ‘93, MS ‘00, fellow alumna and Pacific University Trustee Dori Carlson ‘88, OD ‘89, will give remarks. Included will be thanks to the many benefactors for their contributions toward the multi-million dollar renovation that features new patient lanes in the EyeClinic, as well as upgraded clinical research labs and classroom spaces for students and faculty.
