COVID-19 Information

Not being at Pacific University, taking classes online and having limited access to student support services can be difficult. This is especially true for those from historically marginalized populations. The Office of Equity Diversity and Inclusion will be available to meet virtually and assist with any concerns you may need.

Remember, COVID-19 does not discriminate. Neither do we at Pacific. Please help keep our community safe by interrupting stigma by sharing accurate information and speaking up if you witness/experience harassment or acts of discrimination. You may report concerns of discrimination to the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion by email at nrodrigu@pacificu.edu or by phone at 503-352-1457.  For any inquiries of resources for the state of Oregon or other states you call home, find National Resources for COVID-19.
