The Mission of Pepperdine University

Pepperdine University 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:

  • 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

The 2008 Annual Report was produced by the Office of Public Affairs.
