Seaver College Diversity Projects and Programs

Multicultural Theatre Project

The Multicultural Theatre Project (MTP) is a transdisciplinary, arts-based, critical pedagogy, a theatrical experience that provides an environment where students can explore the multidimensionality of diversity: intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. For more information, please contact Dr. Joi Carr, Creative/Program Director, at joi.carr@pepperdine.edu and please visit The Multicultural Theatre Project.

Week of Peace, Hope, and Justice

The week's events will include documentaries, guest speakers and displays designed to celebrate the victories of peace in the past and to educate the Pepperdine community about issues that are currently preventing peace and justice in the world.  It provides a new understanding of peace, refresh the promise of hope, and provide new direction on the road to justice. For more information, please visit the Office of Intercultural Affairs.

Urban Reality Tour

A full day experience in which students learn about Los Angeles and the social, political, economic, justice and diversity issues that affect the residents of the city. The students meet with social service agencies and explore both Skid Row and Hollywood in small groups. Upon returning to campus they work together to create an artistic representation that recognizes and appreciates the complexities of their community.

Students take a one-day educational tour in which they visit eight sites for the homeless and learn valuable insights about homeless programs in at-risk communities.

Social Action and Justice Colloquium

Social Action and Justice (SAAJ) Colloquia is a four-course, interdisciplinary sequence designed for students who are interested in making a difference in the world. Organized in a seminar format, the SAAJ Colloquia focuses on complex issues such as human rights, diversity, wealth and poverty, the environment, the interplay of religion and culture, and the role of the media in shaping social movements.
