Please join me and Pacific University in honoring Juneteenth on Friday, June 19. Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, commemorates the day, in 1865, that the last slaves in America were legally freed from bondage, two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. To our knowledge, Pacific has not publicly acknowledged this day previously. We are working to do better, and we invite you to continue the dialogue with us.
Today’s conversation centers on microaggressions and how making an intentional choice to not immediately confront one’s oppressor is a commendable, self-preserving survival strategy for people of color.
Fire alarm and mechanical testing in campus buildings started on June 15, and will continue until June 30.
Think about protecting your vision during protests.
On Friday, June 12, Oregon announced its guidance for colleges and universities to begin resuming on-campus operations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn what this means for Pacific as we prepare for Fall 2020.
Professor William Todd Schultz teaches psychology at Pacific University and has an interest in what makes creative people tick. He has created a playlist which emanates emotional honesty and a level of mild melancholy with moments of hope that some have perhaps been feeling throughout this pandemic.
