Human Resources

The Pacific University Office of Human Resources is committed to developing partnerships by sharing and providing knowledge, support and advocacy to faculty, staff, students and the community. We aim to be business partners, good listeners, committed advocates for employees and the university, stewards of university policies and procedures, and active community members.

Members of the HR staff serve on the Staff Senate, Benefits & Compensation Committee, Staff Development Committee, Staff Conference Committee, Honors & Awards Committee, and University Diversity Task Force.

We have available to assist you with university policies, job opportunities, employee payroll and benefits, and professional development training and continuing education.
