Message From the Dean

Welcome to the College of Optometry at Pacific University.

Over the past two decades—as a student, professor, and now Dean—I have had the pleasure of seeing the college grow while remaining true to the qualities that have always made Pacific a unique place to be. Our faculty share vast expertise, our past reflects a tradition of innovation and service, and our future promises limitless opportunity.

The College of Optometry at Pacific is a place that has developed and nurtured my passion for knowledge, discovery, and service within optometry and vision science. I look forward to sharing that with you as we strive to inspire our community to think, care, create, and pursue justice in the world.
