Please join me in wishing Narce the best as she embarks on a new adventure at the end of Fall 2022.
From President Coyle
At Pacific University, we are proud to recognize and celebrate the many students, alumni and employees in our community who identify as Native American or Indigenous.
Like many in our community, Pacific University has been following the distressing events in Iran stemming from the tragic death of Mahsa Amini. Our hearts go out to Ms. Amini’s family and loved ones, and to the peaceful protesters who continue to fight bravely in support of basic rights for Iranian citizens, especially women, to freely express their thoughts and opinions, whether in writing, speech, or the very clothing that they choose to wear. Such events remind us of the fragility of the basic freedoms we enjoy, and while we stand with our Iranian colleagues both here and abroad, we also seek to uphold these fundamental principles in our community.
