The Pepperdine Ambassadors Council represents the uniqueness of the University through service and the fostering of relationships among the administration, students, supporters of the university and our community.
The Pepperdine Ambassadors Council was originally created by a group of students who felt a need for greater leadership opportunities as well as the need to give back to the very same institution which supported them.
The group, which was originally called the Pep 20, was brought together to serve under the Office of the President. Through their pride and enthusiasm they promoted the positive image of Pepperdine. In 1992, the Pepperdine Ambassadors Council was moved from the Alumni Relations Office to University Advancement, where it is today. By redirecting its energies to advancing the University as a whole, the group would represent all Pepperdine students at official University events.
For the 2015-2016 academic year, under the direction of advisor Lauren Desai, the Pepperdine Ambassadors Council has a membership of 20 Ambassadors who uphold the same traditions and ideals of the original Pep 20.
This year's council is ready and willing to serve. Ambassadors have held leadership positions in many areas of student development such as the Student Government Association, Campus Ministry, the Housing and Community Living Office, Greek organizations, and many other campus-wide groups. The Pepperdine Ambassadors Council believes that it can best represent the University by being an integral part of its everyday life.
