    Faculty/Staff Recommendation Form

    Faculty/Staff Recommendation Form for PAC Re-Applicant

    All applications will be reviewed in the first round of the selection process. The names of the applicants will be removed prior to the applications being evaluated to create an anonymous environment.

    Following this, a select group of applicants will be asked back for a round of interviews during the week of March 30 - April 3, 2020. Members of the current council and various faculty, staff, and community members will be sitting in on these interviews and helping to evaluate each applicant. Any student selected for an interview that is attending an overseas program (or Washington DC) will have the opportunity to interview live via Skype or alternative Web service. From these interviews, the 2020–2021 Council will be selected.

    In early April 2020, the Pepperdine Ambassadors Council 2020–2021 will be announced.
