Seminars and Events

The Center for Faith and Learning sponsors summer seminars for Pepperdine faculty and staff on a variety of topics related to faith and academic life. Participants are provided with books, lunch, and a stipend for the seminar.

In addition to these opportunities, faculty and staff participate in other events to enhance the connection between faith and the life of the mind. These include fieldtrips to faith-related museum exhibits hosted by our museum art director and art history professors and attendance of student plays with opportunity for discussion of the faith themes with the director and actors.
