Founder's Day 2020
Each year Pepperdine honors founder George Pepperdine and the impact he has made with a celebration at the beginning of a new academic year. To all who have come to love Pepperdine University, the story of the founding of our University has long stood as a source of pride and of inspiration. It is a story of selflessness that serves as a constant reminder of the great value of higher education.
Because we were apart in the fall of 2020 in order to keep our Pepperdine community safe, we gathered for the year’s Founder’s Day via Livestream on August 26. Join fellow faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends for a special tribute to Pepperdine’s extraordinary heritage and a celebration of its promising future.
Support the Student Relief and Recovery Fund
Our students’ needs are now greater than ever as they face the upheaval of a new educational reality. By making a gift to the Student Relief and Recovery Fund you can honor George Pepperdine’s legacy while providing additional scholarship support and emergency funds for our most vulnerable students and ensuring that our University can provide online learning opportunities of the highest caliber until in-person instruction is feasible.
