About University of the Pacific

At University of Pacific, we believe that diversity, equity and inclusion are essential to the fulfillment of our institutional mission. Diversity is an indispensable component of academic excellence. It enriches the educational experience by allowing all of us to share knowledge, develop critical thinking skills, and understand new perspectives and ideas that are grounded in all of the ways we are different and unique.

University of the Pacific is California’s oldest university, founded July 10, 1851—less than a year after California received statehood. Established by pioneering Methodist ministers, it remains the only Methodist-affiliated university in California.
