Response to Supreme Court ruling

University of the Pacific, California’s first and oldest university, is proud of our tradition of providing top-quality educational experiences to students of all backgrounds, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, religions, ideologies and socioeconomic levels. The principles of diversity and inclusion are–and will always be–part of our core values.

While we will carefully analyze today’s Supreme Court decisions, we believe unequivocally that our diversity is an integral part of our great strength. Our commitment to creating and nurturing diverse, equitable and inclusive communities on our three campuses–and maintaining welcoming environments for all learners–will remain as strong as ever.
