Alumni Research

Welcome to the Alumni Research homepage. As an extension of the Christian Spirituality Research Institute, the Alumni Research initiative began in the Fall of 2013. Focusing on postgraduate alumni experiences, Dr. Cindy Miller-Perrin and Dr. Don Thompson are conducting this research project. With the support of President Benton, they are meeting with alumni around the country to discuss their real life experiences since leaving Pepperdine. The project's overall purpose is to understand how one's sense of life purpose and direction change over time. Complimentary dinner receptions are held prior to the focus groups during which several questions are posed in regards to key mentors, moment of crisis, barriers, and other experiences that have affirmed or shaken one's sense of life purpose. Included on this page are reports from recent events as well as upcoming focus group locations.
