Summer 2020

As the world confronted the deadly impact of COVID-19, the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and entire industries shifted to adjust to the new realities it presented, Pepperdine alumni, faculty, staff, and students played an important role in providing insights related to the extraordinary circumstances. The Summer 2020 issue of Pepperdine Magazine takes a close look at the challenges and opportunities presented by the novel coronavirus and the Pepperdine community's contributions to the national conversation surrounding the global pandemic, including an examination of the University's shift to a remote learning environment; a scientific exploration of the development of mRNA vaccines and their ability to protect vulnerable populations from the SARS CoV-2 virus; an inside look at the philosophies that drive the multidisciplinary group of Pepperdine leaders that develops and deploys the University's emergency policies and protocols; and the therapeutic uses of humor in coping with a threat such as a global pandemic.
