Welcome to the PVC

Make service to others a large part of your Pepperdine experience. The PVC is a university-wide center where you can discover service opportunities that are right for you. The Center is also the hub of community engagement and service-learning, home to Step Forward Day and Project Serve, as well as a place where students understand God's call to justice. We invite you to learn about the needs of our community and the ways in which you can become an advocate for community development and social justice.
