Welcome to the Community Website for the Pepperdine Center for Faith and Learning. George Pepperdine believed that a Christian education should help students learn not merely "how to make a living," but "how to live." While such goals are pursued in many ways, research demonstrates that university students and alumni identify classroom experiences and relationships with faculty as primary influences on both their professional and personal development during the college years. For Pepperdine University, this illustrates the importance of continually nurturing a healthy and organic symmetry between the academic and religious dimensions of the university mission.
