Center for Faith and Learning
Welcome to the Center for Faith and Learning
More and more, Christian educators are asking how Christian perspectives might inform both their written and creative scholarship and their classroom teaching.
The Pepperdine University Center for Faith and Learning grounds its work in the mission of Pepperdine University as it seeks to enhance the connections between classroom teaching, scholarship, and Christian faith and practice. We are located at Tyler Campus Center 106.
On September 5, 2012, Center for Faith and Learning Director Gary Selby introduced the "Heart, Soul, Strength, and Mind" proposal at the September President's Briefing. This proposal grows out of several years of careful examination of spiritual formation here at Pepperdine, and it is envisioned as a beginning point in an ongoing conversation about the next stage of our journey as an institution. A "Discussion Draft" of that proposal is now available for your reflection and comment. (Questions and comments may be sent to Gary Selby).
