Sixth Annual Loqui Celebration to Honor Graduates Committed to Promoting Diversity

Pepperdine University Seaver College will present the sixth annual ceremony Loqui: A Celebration of Diversity and Inclusive Excellence at Smothers Theatre on the Malibu campus on Friday, April 29, at 1 PM.

The event will be held one day before the spring 2016 commencement ceremony, and will feature a variety of student performances and presentations. Two graduating seniors who have demonstrated an active commitment to advancing institutional diversity and inclusion will receive the Bowers, Davis, and Todd Award for Leadership in Diversity and Inclusive Excellence.

The award nomination process encourages participation from students, faculty, and staff. Student nominees must meet several criteria, including being good role models to their peers, being rooted in a robust and active Christian faith commitment, and being highly regarded for their unusual service to advancing institutional diversity and inclusive excellence in the Pepperdine community. The awards are then presented to one male and one female senior.

Each year, Loqui honors those graduates and distinct cultures that shape the Pepperdine experience and deepen the community‚Äôs collective sense of belonging. The University roots its educational mission as a diverse learning community in the animating work of a triune God, whose perfect unity in diversity brings to life abundant meaning and significance.

This event is open to the Pepperdine community, and registration is required to attend. For additional information, visit the Seaver College website.
