“Diversity is core to Fresno Pacific’s Identity. As a Christian University, we’re driven by the gospel to become a community of learners where people of all backgrounds, types, and experiences are welcome."

President Joseph Jones, Ph.D.

"The theological idea of the 'imago dei' grounds our commitment to diversity. At FPU, we share the belief that each individual has value that is matched by the diversity that defines our shared humanity. Our commitment at FPU is to faithfully work towards creating a world that is equitable, inclusive, and honoring to our Creator. At FPU, we strive to model what Shirley Hoogstra defines as a 'unifying grace.'"

D. Gayle Copeland, Ph.D., Provost/Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs

"Fresno Pacific University is a diverse body of believers committed to biblical expression of the kingdom of God. We serve all students through multicultural and multiethnic collaboratives with the local church and parachurch organizations. Therefore, we hold to the authority of the word of God, its teachings and authoritative command to serve all others who are made in the image of God."

Angulus Wilson, University Pastor, Dean of Spiritual Formation and Chief Diversity Officer
