Message From the Dean
Welcome to Pacific University College of Optometry.
The College of Optometry at Pacific University is an amazing and dynamic program, where we focus on an advanced education that allows our students to be successful and make a difference. We want our students to have a broad understanding of our profession, while allowing them to follow their passion; this starts by building a community. At PUCO, we are a community that supports each other; we will help you through the stressful times, and cheer you on when you have success. By capitalizing on the collective intelligence and passion of all within our program, we have developed a community of strong support and growth.
As Interim Dean of the College of Optometry, my goal is to ensure that our program continues to be a leader in optometric education, through a diverse program that helps to advance our profession and our community. I look forward to having you be a part of our community that inspires everyone involved, from prospective students to alumni.
