Diversity Reception

Diversity & Inclusion

The University of the Pacific community — including students, faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni — believes that diversity and inclusion are essential to the fulfillment of our institutional mission. We value inclusiveness in learning, curricular and co-curricular programming, campus climate, recruitment, admissions, hiring and retention.

The McGeorge campus in residential Sacramento fosters a vibrant, supportive and welcoming community, which celebrates the many definitions of diversity in our student body and community. McGeorge is recognized as the No. 9 law school with the "Greatest Resources for Minority Students" in the Princeton Review's Best 169 Law Schools 2018 rankings.
