Graduate School of Education and Psychology Presents Ted Baehr for Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series
The Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) Dean's Distinguished Lecture Series will host Ted Baehr, founder and publisher of MOVIEGUIDE: The Family Guide to Movies and Entertainment and chair of the Christian Film & Television Commission ministry, Thursday, May 10, at 7 p.m. in Room 203 of Pepperdine's West Los Angeles Graduate Campus.
Fueled by his desire to redeem the values of the media while educating audiences on how to use discernment in selecting their entertainment, Baehr, will dig deeply into the moral content, theology, and worldviews of the movies, videos, and television programs reviewed by MOVIEGUIDE. He will also discuss how he has used his 40 years of research on the media and culture to create a nonprofit that is the only active liaison between studio executives and the general public for issues of family entertainment and faith. Furthermore, he will speak on how to turn your life's purpose into a thriving organization.
Generously sponsored by Susan and Don Rice, the Dean's Distinguished Lecture Series brings leading agents of change to GSEP to discuss the challenges and opportunities in servant-leadership in communities across the world.
Created in 2010, the Dean's Distinguished Lecture Series helps support the GSEP mission of educating students to inspire lasting change in their communities and lead lives of service, purpose, and leadership.
Rice is a member of the Pepperdine University Board of Regents, a GSEP alumnus, and chair of the GSEP Board of Visitors.
