The mission of Pacific University is to inspire students who think, care, create, and pursue justice in the world. At Pacific magazine, our mission is to share the stories of the people who live out that mission every day.
We hope that the stories you read, the pictures you see, the videos you watch, and the conversations you engage in — both in the printed magazine and online — help bring a piece of Pacific University into your home.
