From President Hallick
We understand that the current environment is stressful on all university employees, both personally and professionally. In these unprecedented times, this is our commitment to employees.
It is absolutely our intent to schedule an opportunity to celebrate the Classes of 2020 in person and give you an opportunity to cross the stage, whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student, when it is safe to do so. The cancelation of the May ceremony is only an indication that this will not happen in May, and we are not yet able to reschedule.
Pacific is transitioning to online courses by April 1. Some programs are paused for this transition, while others continue. Learn more about how to make a successful transition to online classes.

The nomination deadline has now been extended through April 1. Nomination forms for annual staff, diversity and community awards are online.
