The Board of Regents of University of the Pacific is entrusted with final responsibility for the quality and integrity of the education provided by the university. It selects and supports the president, advances the institution’s mission, and ensures fiscal integrity and preservation of  resources to support the university.

The Board of Regents comprises a diverse set of experts from business, education, law and other fields. Many Regents are graduates of University of the Pacific. The board has up to 35 members and strives to include graduates of all three campuses and professional schools.

Regents serve three-year terms and can be reappointed twice, for a total of three consecutive terms. As with most nonprofit higher education institutions, board membership is a volunteer position. At Pacific, Regents pay for their own travel, lodging and other expenses to attend university meetings and events.

To strengthen university relationships, the president and vice president of the Associated Students of University of the Pacific (ASuop), the chair and chair-elect of the Academic Council, the chair and chair-elect of the Staff Advisory Council and the president and president-elect of the Pacific Alumni Association are recognized as non-voting liaison representatives to the Board of Regents and are invited to represent their constituencies at regents meetings.

The board meets three times each academic year on one of Pacific's campuses in Stockton, San Francisco or Sacramento. As a private university, Pacific does not open its meetings to the public.
