Welcome to Fresno Pacific University

President Joseph Jones

Welcome to Fresno Pacific University. We are a Christian liberal arts university committed to engaging the culture and serving our communities. With five campusesa diverse student body and a world-class faculty and staff, we are an intentional welcoming community. No student will be a stranger here, all will be cared for in a manner that represents the love of God.

Students are our first thought, learning is our purpose and passion and service is our way of life. You will find many staff and faculty who will walk alongside you through both your challenges and victories, your times of sorrow and joy. You will find support at all our campuses to help you adjust and be successful.

We trust you will discover the many possibilities that await you during your time with us, even those of you who pursue a course online through one of our virtual communities. God’s possibilities are just a step away. We are here to help you discover.

My hope is that you will grow beyond your dreams, experience learning that will provoke your imagination and engage in possibilities that will inspire your future. Jesus gave us a principle: “ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be open to you” (Matthew 7:7). If you believe that “… with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26), you will find that a brilliant future awaits you.

If you will stretch yourself, you will discover a world of possibilities through this wonderful learning community at Fresno Pacific University.
