Professors Who Know Your Name

You can see it happening in discussion groups dotting the lawns and inside the student center; in the impromptu conversations between faculty and students as they walk across campus.

It's teaching and learning, the Pacific way.

We count our faculty among our strongest assets — and faculty whose priority it is to inspire learning by engaging students in and around the classroom. That leads to a culture of engagement, which in turn fosters mentoring relationships. It produces an environment of real-world learning, with professors who know your name. 

Throughout your entire educational journey at Pacific, you will find a supportive culture that is all about one thing: your success. Meet these three professors — Keith Hatschek, Alan Ray and Gary Martin — who embody just that. Pacific's Alumni Association honored them recently with Faculty Mentor Awards, recognizing their years of mentoring students and developing lasting mentoring relationships long after they graduate and become alumni.

At Pacific, forging close connections with your professors is just the beginning of a lifelong relationship.

Professor Keith Hatschek

Conservatory Professor Keith Hatscheck, Music Management Program

Pacific students and alumni all say Professor Hatschek's guidance and encouragement, along with helping them make connections for the future, were of paramount importance to their success.

Professor Alan Ray

Communication Professor Alan Ray, College of the Pacific

Professor Ray focuses on each student's story and career goals. He's good at adjusting his curriculum to meet those needs and connecting students with practical experiences that prepare them for a successful future.

Professor Gary Martin

Asst. Dean and Professor Gary Martin, Engineering and Computer Science

More than a good listener, Dean Martin has the ability to see a student's potential and provides the encouragement and support to help them achieve more than they thought was possible.
