“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."

"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
