Professional Development

Pepperdine is dedicated to the personal, professional, and spiritual development of all faculty and staff members, and is proud to offer many resources to support the needs of all University employees. It is in our work that we find purpose, and through our work that we may serve and inspire others.

Professional Development Series

Regular classes, events, and symposiums offer opportunities for discussion, contemplation, and introspection, as well as equipping employees with the necessary tools to excel in their careers. These sessions also allow us to build community by aligning our work to the purpose of the University. Some courses are presented by Pepperdine employees and seek to facilitate business more efficiently within our organization; others are designed to address relevant workplace issues and are presented by experts in the field.
