Pepperdine Welcomes New Faculty
Pepperdine Magazine is the feature magazine for Pepperdine University and its growing community of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends.
As hundreds of new students arrived at Pepperdine this fall to begin a new stage of life, so too did 13 new, full-time faculty members. These professors are beginning a new phase of their careers at the five schools of Pepperdine, enriching the University community with their diverse backgrounds, academic expertise, and professional accomplishments as they educate, inspire, and collaborate with students.
Joining the Seaver College faculty are Dorothy Andreas, Ryan Board, George Carlsen, Jason Chanos, Megan Francis, Eric Olson, Heather Thomson-Bunn, and Nicole F. Velasquez. Two new faculty members join the team at the School of Law—Michael Avi Helfand and Gregory McNeal; two join the Graduate School of Education and Psychology—Carrie Castaneda-Sound and Judy Ho; and the Graziadio School of Business and Management welcomes Steven Opurt to the faculty.
