                                    At Pepperdine, higher learning is aligned with a higher purpose. By integrating service, worship, and social responsibility with rigorous academic study, we create a community that nurtures heart, soul, strength, and mind.

                                    Pepperdine is founded in the Churches of Christ tradition, which has served as the University's spiritual foundation for more than 75 years. We envision the University as a place where people of all faith backgrounds treat one another with care and respect.
