Central to our work at Pepperdine is the importance of leading a life of service. In this issue of Colleague, we are proud to celebrate the men and women of the military, who have dedicated years of their lives to serving others, and in some cases, have paid an extremely high price for doing so.
Letters from the Dean Archives
While we celebrate the 75th anniversary of Pepperdine University, we recognize that for over 40 years, the Graduate School of Education and Psychology has been preparing students for lives of purpose, service, and leadership.
Our faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to think outside the box to find new methods of solving complex issues and to find creative techniques to improve upon established procedures.
The Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) has developed an international reputation for its academic excellence and emphasis on service.
Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology invites you to participate as an active discussant on the updated Colleague Web site.
The Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) has a history of emphasizing service in the curriculum and promoting leadership in and out of the classroom.
Education does not end with a piece of paper, the closing of a year, or the assignment of a new title. Learning is a lifelong endeavor enjoyable in and of itself.
GSEP is determined to support our students and alumni with the same level of commitment and resources as we have throughout our history of educating.
An important part of future learning is classroom technologies, and I am proud to say that we are at the forefront of exploring this significant initiative.
As an Inspiration for Change, GSEP is often the incubator for improvement, advancement, and leadership.
In leading by example, GSEP alumni, students, and faculty inspire others to serve with authenticity and grace.
At the Graduate School of Education and Psychology, we recently reached several milestones. Last year we celebrated our 35th anniversary as a graduate school.
While our path will change, requiring us to prepare and adapt, we will also remain dedicated to our heritage and traditions.
It continues to delight me when I see that commitment unfold into programs and services that touch people and make a difference in our communities.
As the Graduate School of Education and Psychology continues to change and grow, we took this year to reexamine and contemplate our vision for this institution.
The scholar-practitioner model that we adhere to at GSEP is a method of learning that equips students with the theoretical knowledge they need to succeed.
Pepperdine has undergone significant growth this year, both in the number of students and the space to accommodate them.
