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. We're now located in Scott Hall 127!

Support Services

We provide support services and a sense of connection and belonging to Pacific students, focusing specifically on issues of sex and gender.


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


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. 

Volunteer or fulfill Practicum Credits with the CGE!

The CGE has a number of exciting opportunities for volunteers and practicum students. Please fill out our Volunteer & Practicum Application to learn more and apply to work with us!
