Pacific Remains Only Voter Friendly University Campus in Oregon
“If you build it, they will come.” And just like the famous line in the film Field of Dreams, Pacific University has built a robust voter education plan, which keeps the awards coming and students voting.
Pacific has once again earned the designation as a Voter Friendly Campus for 2023-2024 from two national voting rights organizations. The university also remains the only higher education institute in Oregon to be named a Voter Friendly Campus.
According to the Tom McCall Center for Civic Engagement (MCCE), 252 students pledged to vote in 2022, which is considered a strong rate for a midterm election season. Two years earlier, 331 students pledged to vote.
