University of the Pacific has launched an initiative to make our policies more readily available and transparent, so that it is easier for employees to do their jobs and for students to learn about topics ranging from use of campus facilities to filming on campus. As a first step, we are gathering existing policies that apply to our three campuses and consolidating them here on this searchable SharePoint site. Some of these policies previously were posted elsewhere on the university's website and some are being posted for the first time, but all of the policies initially posted have been previously approved by the appropriate approving authorities, including the faculty, the administration and/or the Board of Regents. If you have a question about university policies, please consult your supervisor.

Answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) are available here.

Please view this site as a work in progress, and note the following:

  • Over time we will continue to add new content to this site, including newly approved policies, and newly revised and updated university policies.
  • Policies not yet posted here remain in full effect.
  • Only university-wide or campus-wide​ policies will be posted here; policies that apply to particular schools, colleges or units will not appear here.
  • Policies pertaining exclusively to faculty, such as policies concerning tenure and promotion, can be found in the Faculty Handbook, which is also posted on this site.
  • Policies pertaining to all employees, including student workers, are found in the Staff Handbook.
  • In addition to the policies pertaining exclusively to students, which are found in the Tiger Lore Student Handbook, the website contains other Student Life policies that relate to students.
  • Other information relevant to policies or related business standards may be found on other Pacific websites.  If you do not find the information you are seeking on this site, you may want to check other websites such as (Human Resources or the Controller's Office).

To help us complete this project, we welcome and encourage you to submit existing policies that are not yet reflected on this site. We also would like to hear your suggestions of areas where new policy may be needed. Please email us directly at
