Step Forward Day

Step Forward Day 2014 continued the Pepperdine tradition

Step Forward Day 2014 was amazing

Step Forward Day is one of the oldest, most consistent service events in the country. Nearly 1,400 friends, new and old, took a "step forward" this year on the 26th anniversary. Step Forward Day is a simple yet significant way the Pepperdine community is a neighbor and participates in our mission and calling. Go ahead and put next year's Step Forward Day on your calendar: September 12, 2015.

Who Steps Forward?

All parts of the University participate on Step Forward Day: students, staff, faculty, and alumni from all Pepperdine schools participate. Family and friends are also welcome. Please be aware that the Malibu Step Forward Day event registration is different from registration with an alumni chapter. Either way, we hope you can join Pepperdine in the movement.


#SFD2014 dominated social media on September 6. Take a look at all of the great images that showed up on instagram.
