The University of the Pacific (UOP or Pacific) is a private university in Stockton, California. It was first chartered on July 10, 1851, in Santa Clara, CA under the name California Wesleyan College, but it was later moved to San Jose, and then to Stockton in 1923.

Pacific is the oldest chartered university in California. In addition to its liberal arts college, and its schools of education, engineering, business, international studies and music, it has three professional graduate schools: the School of Dentistry in San Francisco, the School of Law in Sacramento, and the school of Pharmacy and Health Sciences located in Stockton.

Pacific was once ranked among the top 100 national universities in the United States according to U.S. News & World Report, with its school of law similarly ranked among law schools. It has extensive collections pertaining to jazz musician and alumnus Dave Brubeck, who in 1953 released the live album Jazz at the College of the Pacific. It is also home to the papers of environmental pioneer John Muir.
