First 100 Days

Welcome—and thank you for supporting our worthy students by giving to and being a part of the First 100 Days campaign. The energy and enthusiasm we build in these first 100 days will help us scale the mountains ahead of us and lift Pepperdine to new heights of achievement. No single person can make that happen alone, so I am especially grateful to you for joining us as we ascend—together.

–President Jim Gash

Goals by Day 100

For Jim and the Pepperdine leadership team, these first 100 days are all about gathering momentum and hitting the ground running—not just in terms of fundraising, but also with meeting people and making connections in every part of our Pepperdine community, from students on campus to alumni, parents, and friends around the world. Below, we'll be regularly updating Jim's progress toward these goals as we demonstrate our commitment to including every Wave in our vision for Pepperdine's future.
