For Faculty and Staff
Commencement is a day where we honor our Pacific community, including the outstanding educators who have made success possible for generations of Pacific students. The entire faculty and staff community is invited to participate in the Commencement ceremonies, as we celebrate your achievements, as well as those of your students and colleagues.
Pacific has a number of ways in which we recognize outstanding faculty and staff contributions to the University, and we encourage you to consider nominating your colleagues for one of the awards listed below. It is a proud moment for the University when we honor the teachers, scholars and staff members who make Pacific such an extraordinary place, and we hope you will join us in this salute.
Order of the Pacific
The Order of Pacific is the highest award the University can give. It is intended to honor members of the University regents, faculty, administration and staff on all three campuses who have given distinguished service and made outstanding contributions to the University over a significant number of years. Nominees' contributions should extend significantly beyond the expectations of their positions, and should have the impact of enriching the life of the University. The award is given at the termination of a person's direct connection to the University. More information >>
