President Lesley M. Hallick, who has provided Pacific University with exemplary leadership for the past 12 years, has announced her intention to retire at the end of the current academic year. Hence, the Board of Trustees has announced a nationwide search to recruit a successor who can further build on the many accomplishments and positive trajectory the University has enjoyed over the past decade.

Founded in 1849, Pacific University is a diverse learning community offering a unique combination of nationally recognized undergraduate, graduate and professional programs in the arts and sciences, education, business, optometry and the health professions. With two primary campuses in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, Pacific melds the close, nurturing learning environment of a small liberal arts college with the rigorous scholarship of a premier institution. The University enrolls approximately 3,850 students who build deep personal relationships with friends, mentors, faculty members, and academic and career counselors.

Pacific is the No. 1 private research institution in the Pacific Northwest and among the top on the West Coast. Students have unparalleled access to high-tech equipment, cutting-edge discoveries, and expert faculty members. Undergraduate and graduate students conduct, publish and present research across disciplines.

The University seeks a caring, visionary leader who is dedicated to students and committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. It is expected that the next President will have impeccable character, outstanding communication skills, financial acumen and the ability to make friends and raise funds for the University. The best candidates are strategic and possess a deep understanding of the challenges facing higher education. The University seeks a leader who is inspirational, collaborative, energetic, and approachable. (A more complete ‘Leadership Statement’ will soon be available at
