Boxer Family Town Halls

Family support is an important part of many Pacific University students' success. 

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we know that families have lots of questions about their students' wellbeing. We invite families to join us for periodic virtual Boxer Family Town Hall sessions, where members of the Student Affairs team, as well as special guests, provide updates on campus activities and services, plus answer your questions.

Join a Town Hall

Boxer Family Town Hall sessions are offered via Zoom at or by phone at 1-253-215-8782 with Meeting ID 974 6913 7900. The password is sent to families by email the Friday before each session. If you are not on our family email list, please sign up here.
