Pacific University is a diverse learning community offering a unique combination of nationally recognized undergraduate, graduate and professional programs in the arts and sciences, education, business, optometry and the health professions.
Pacific’s focus on teaching and learning in a close nurturing environment leads to genuine transformation in students’ lives.
About one in four of our students — from freshmen to future doctors — are the first in their families to attend college. Each experience greater socioeconomic growth as a result of their educations, compared with peers at other colleges in the PNW.
Our students mix their rigorous academic experiences with meaningful research, community engagement and life experiences, helping them become successful and active citizens and leaders.
We put a premium on small classes and personal attention. We want our students to call Pacific “home” and with so many programs waiting for you - we cannot wait for you to join our Boxer Family!
