                                    Mission, Vision, and Affirmation Statement

                                    George Pepperdine History Collage - Pepperdine University


                                    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. 


                                    Pepperdine University will be a preeminent, global, Christian university, known for the integration of faith and learning, whose graduates lead purposeful lives as servant-minded leaders throughout the world.

                                    Our vision statement declares what we intend to become. George Pepperdine envisioned an institution that would transform students' lives so that they would, in turn, impact culture. He imagined a vast body of alumni—men and women conscious of their good fortune, recipients of the generous gift of a Christian education—who would feel the moral imperative to serve others sacrificially. Hence, the school's motto: "Freely ye received, freely give" (Matthew 10:8).

                                    Affirmation Statement

                                    As a Christian University Pepperdine affirms:

                                    That God is

                                    That God is revealed uniquely in Christ

                                    That the educational process may not, with 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.
