Meet Pacific University's Dean of Students

Welcome to Clark Hall, home of the Office of Dean of Students for Pacific University. As the Dean, I strive to provide support, assistance, and opportunities for all of our students, on all of our campuses. The Student Life staff and I are here to help you get the most from your time as a student at the university.

I encourage students to get involved on campus, taking advantage of the more than 60 clubs and organizations that we have to offer. Students should also consider getting involved in student government, or one of the various centers on campus. Athletics is also an important part of the college experience for many of our students, whether that be at the varsity, junior varsity, club, or intramural level. In addition, graduate and professional students will find a variety of clubs, volunteer experiences, and professional societies within their colleges and programs.

Part of my role as the Dean is to help students to find constructive ways to improve their overall experience at Pacific. Student viewpoint on programs, policies, events and facilities at Pacific are always welcomed and helpful in shaping the future of the university. I like hear about student ideas and thoughts through our Undergraduate and Professional Student Senates, as well as directly from individual students.

Previewing the website is an excellent way for you to view the many services and programs you can access through our office. Feel free to email me at wperkins@pacificu.edu with questions, concerns, or ideas.

Sincerely, Will Perkins
Associate Vice President of Student Affairs and Dean of Students
