On September 7, 2013, Pepperdine celebrated the 25th year of Step Forward Day. This makes it one of the oldest, most consistent service events in the country. More than 1,500 friends, new and old, took a "step forward" that has led Pepperdine to serve for the rest of the year. Step Forward Day is a simple yet significant way the Pepperdine community is a neighbor and participates in our mission and calling.
All parts of the University participated; students, staff, faculty, and alumni from all Pepperdine schools participated with Step Forward Day this year. Family and friends also joined us. To those of you who served on September, 7: Thank you.
Step Forward Day 2014 will be September 6th. Below is information to help you get ready for it early.
