Celebrating 25 Years

The Pepperdine School of Public Policy (SPP) invites you to join us in celebrating our founding 25 years ago. Since 1996, SPP has shaped policy leaders. We like to refer to our alumni as #Wavemakers. We will be hosting events all year long focused on the theme, "That freedom, whether spiritual, intellectual, or economic, is indivisible." Leading up to the gala, we will be showcasing the students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, and friends that have contributed to the success of what SPP is today. We encourage you to show your support on social media using #SPP25 where those who will become part of our story can see a glimpse of what makes SPP so unique.
