COVID-19 Information

In an effort to help limit the spread of the COVID-19, the Center for Gender Equity will not be hosting large events or programs. This can be a challenging time, and we encourage you to reach out to the following support resources at the Support at Pacific page.

If you have had an unwanted or confusing sexual experience, the Sexual Assault Resource Center (SARC) is offering 24/7 hotline assistance: 503-640-5311.

Center for Gender Equity

The mission of the Center for Gender Equity is to promote equity around gender and sexuality, for Pacific students and the surrounding communities, through support services, education, and activism.

Support Services

We provide support services and a sense of connection and belonging to Pacific students, focusing specifically, but not exclusively, on issues of sex and gender.

Education

We provide educational programming to the campus and wider community on issues related to gender equity.

Activism

We strive to dismantle the systems of oppression that perpetuate gender inequity through coalition building and collective action.

The Center for Gender Equity (CGE) is open to everyone on Pacific University’s campuses and in the community, regardless of gender. We seek opportunities to cooperate with any group, as long as that collaboration furthers the mission of CGE.
