Student Researcher Duties and Benefits

Student researchers benefit from learning research design, conducting a literature review, and utilizing data visualization software. Student researchers also have a chance to submit their research for presentation at local conferences.

Did You Know?

The OIE’s “Did You Know” (DYK) campaign project launched in spring 2022. The project shares knowledge from the OIE’s educational and institutional research activities via DYK Databytes.



Did you know that fall 2023 incoming students reported that the academic reputation of Pepperdine was the predominant reason they decided to enroll? Other top reasons were Pepperdine’s location and its Christian mission. Read more in the OIE’s Incoming Student Survey Snapshot on the Survey Results Page.
