Welcome to Fresno Pacific University! Here we challenge students to think critically, excel academically and live ethically. Our core values and commitment to building character spring from a distinctively Christian perspective. Fresno Pacific prepares people to lead in professions, serve society and transform culture. 

Learning is a lifelong journey, and our undergraduate, graduate and professional development programs provide direction and build competence. The university is organized into four schools: Business, Education, Natural Sciences, and Humanities, Religion and Social Sciences. The university also houses the Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary. While each is centered on different disciplines, all are grounded in the same values.

We are the Central Valley's only accredited Christian university and are accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC).

We measure our success by the accomplishments of our graduates. They become leaders at work, in church and in the world.
