A Legacy of Possibilities

Beginning in fall 2020, Fresno Pacific University celebrates its 75th year. Graduates, students, faculty, administrators, staff, board members and supporters past and present can be proud of what we have accomplished and welcome what is to come. Our history is a legacy of possibilities that invigorates our faith and our resolve. We look to the future to see how our graduates will explore new pathways with hope, courage, knowledge and faith. We remain confident that: "with God all things are possible."
