Pepperdine is a Christian university
committed to the highest standards
of academic excellence and Christian
values, where students are strengthened
for lives of purpose, service, and leadership

As a Christian university, Pepperdine affirms:

impunity, be divorced from the divine process
That the student, as a person of infinite dignity,
is the heart of the educational enterprise
That the quality of student life
is a valid concern of the University
That truth, having nothing to fear from
investigation, should be pursued relentlessly
in every discipline
That spiritual commitment, tolerating no excuse
for mediocrity, demands the highest standards of
academic excellence
That freedom, whether spiritual, intellectual,
or economic, is indivisible
That knowledge calls, ultimately, for a life of service

8 President’s Message
President’s Message
Pepperdine is a premier, global, Christian
university. Our mission is to strengthen
students for lives of purpose, service, and
leadership. Our world is in need of brave,
young leaders who know the difference
between truth and its counterfeit and possess
the character to stand for the truth at all
cost. However, these kinds of leaders are
not born—they are built—and I believe that
Pepperdine is uniquely positioned to deliver
on the promise of building and sending
these leaders into the world. That promise is
for you

Over the course of history, nearly every college or university that began as
a faith-based institution felt it had to choose between excellence in academics
and excellence in faith. But at Pepperdine, we believe they are intertwined
and that they can—and they must—ascend together. Intellectual excellence
starts with the academic culture created by our nationally esteemed faculty
through their scholarship and teaching. We refuse to compromise on the rigor,
scholarship, and mentoring that it takes to shape brilliant leaders

Equally important, Jesus modeled an “open arms” and “open table”
approach to life and faith. At Pepperdine, we are unapologetically Christian,
which means . . . we invite and welcome the world into our community. We
invite everyone here because God designed life that way. He designed us to do
life together. He designed us to need each other—to belong to each other. He
designed us with different gifts and different views, and he strengthens us and
teaches us through the vehicle of different perspectives

Welcome to Pepperdine. I hope and pray that you are challenged and
equipped here to be the best leader you could possibly be

Dean’s Message 9
Dean’s Message
The Graduate School of Education and
Psychology affirms its reputation of quality
and excellence and enhances its standing
as a premier institution of higher education
through the utilization of four distinctives:
technology, leadership, psychology, and
globalization. Infused with Christian
values, these distinctives stand as the
pillars to which all our academic pursuits
are anchored. Consequently, our students
and graduates go out into the world fully
prepared to serve in a spirit of excellence

Technology is the single most disruptive
innovator of our time. The establishment of the Davidson eLearning Center
and the Pat Lucas Teaching Project are ways in which our K–12 and higher
education programs are keeping in step with technological advancements
in education and mental health programming. The leadership distinctive
runs through all our programs. It is clearly evidenced in our Organizational
Leadership (EdD); Learning Technologies (EdD); Educational Leadership,
Administration, and Policy (EdD); Global Leadership and Change (PhD); and
Doctor of Clinical Psychology (PsyD) programs

Graduates of our master’s degree programs in marriage and family therapy,
clinical psychology, and behavioral psychology, as well as our PsyD program,
provide excellent mental health services to our external community. Our
PsyD program has the APA’s highest rating, with a 10-year approval. Data
from our counseling sessions are made HIPAA compliant through cloud-
based services, and our new fully online psychology programs offer a digital
educational experience

Globalization recognizes that leadership decisions can have a far-reaching
impact. Our graduates are uniquely prepared to make culturally sensitive
and politically savvy decisions with an eye toward global interdependence,
mutual respect, and appreciation

Quality and excellence at GSEP are evident in our students and alumni
in whatever setting you find them. Our faculty and staff are representative
of the most dedicated, personable, and academically gifted professionals in
all of higher education. We are fully committed to strengthening lives for
purpose, service, and leadership through our four distinctives
