About University of the Pacific

Read our Diversity Profile Since its founding in 1851 as California’s first chartered university, University of the Pacific has been transforming the lives of students, enhancing the vitality of its surrounding communities and bringing a pioneering spirit to how we educate and serve.

Pacific is recognized for high-quality academic programs, dedicated faculty mentors and excellent professional preparation built on a strong liberal arts foundation. The university is consistently ranked among the top national universities by U.S. News and World Report and Princeton Review.

University of the Pacific is a dynamic three-city university with campuses in Stockton, Sacramento and San Francisco. With a presence in these three very different and uniquely California cities, Pacific enjoys a truly distinctive footprint in California and the West.

Pacific’s beautiful, tree-lined campus in Sacramento provides a focused learning environment with ties to the power and influence of one of the nation’s most influential capital cities. Complementing the legal studies offered at the McGeorge School of Law, new academic offerings are helping address critical issues at the intersection of law, policy, business and health.

San Francisco
Pacific’s high-tech San Francisco campus is strategically situated the heart of one of the world’s most exciting cities. It is home to one of the premier dental schools in the nation, the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, as well as high-quality programs in health, technology, and arts and culture.

Pacific’s Stockton campus in the heart of the California Delta country is renowned for its idyllic beauty, breadth of outstanding academic programs, vibrant and supportive campus life, and close, dedicated teaching relationships with students. Serving more than 5,000 students, the campus is home to the liberal arts College of the Pacific, a conservatory of music, and schools of business, education, engineering, international studies, and pharmacy and health sciences.

Beyond Our Gates
Pacific students, faculty, and staff are passionate about enriching their communities and serving those in need. Under faculty guidance, students provide dental care and health services and information to the underserved, legal clinics for those in need, and literacy and educational enrichment programs for local schoolchildren. Students, faculty and staff contribute tens of thousands of hours of volunteer service each year. The Center for Professional and Continuing Education offers degree completion, continuing education, workforce training and lifelong learning programs. Pacific centers and institutes work toward solutions to local and regional issues through community partnerships, education and research.

The Pacific Tigers compete in NCAA Division I athletics primarily as a member of the West Coast Conference. Fielding seven men’s teams and eleven women’s teams, the Pacific Tigers continue to add individual and team successes to an already outstanding performance record, including more than 30 conference championships and more than 60 NCAA tournament appearances.

Pacific offers more than 80 programs of study leading to undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees, as well as accelerated programs in business, education, law, engineering and the health sciences. Total enrollment at all three campuses is more than 6,000 students.

With a focus on teaching, close faculty-student interaction, academic excellence and real-world learning, Pacific prepares individuals for lifelong personal and professional success.
