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. And for the students of 2014 Distinguished Faculty Award winner Gary Litton, that focus is evident.  Read their story below.
