Our Community

Pacific University employees live and play in Forest Grove, Hillsboro, Eugene and Woodburn — and dozens of communities in between.

Staff and faculty members enjoy life in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, taking advantage of Pacific’s proximity to the entertainment and amenities of Portland, as well as the endless adventures offered by the nearby rivers, mountains and beautiful Oregon Coast.

Pacific employees also enjoy the many perks that come with being part of a university community devoted to discovery. There’s no stop to the cultural and entertainment options offered on campus by Pacific’s many music, theatre and dance groups, as well as visiting lecturers, performers and special events. Check the calendar for the latest happenings.

Staff and faculty also stay busy cheering on the Boxers at numerous sporting events — and, of course, stocking their wardrobes with Pacific red and black.

Like the rest of our neighbors, Pacific employees also benefit from the university’s community outreach, from healthcare clinics to an outstanding early childhood education program.
