Center for Faith and Learning

Purpose

Ron Highfield teaches a class in the amphitheater.

The Pepperdine University administration announced in the fall of 1999 the creation of the Pepperdine University Center for Faith and Learning. The Center offers support for faculty, staff and students in all five schools of the University as they seek to engage in cutting-edge, original scholarship and classroom teaching within a framework of Christian values and beliefs.

Center for Faith and Learning Goals:

  • To provide support for faculty as they seek to engage in cutting-edge, original scholarship and classroom teaching within a framework of Christian values and beliefs. Read more.
  • To provide support and assistance to students in their quest for vocational discernment, as they seek to clarify their calling from God. Read an essay by Center director, Gary Selby, related to this topic.
  • To provide extra-curricular opportunities for students, faculty and staff to integrate faith and learning in both academic and non-academic settings. See our calendar for current opportunities.
  • To provide resources and opportunities for students to engage in practical initiatives aimed at ministry and service, social action and justice. See our "Student Programs" page for more information.
