As the Pepperdine School of Public Policy (SPP) enters its 20th year, we stand committed to our founding principles in preparing the next generation of public leaders. From our unique liberal arts curriculum that balances the quantitative aspects of policy analysis to the study of the Great Books, and a rigorous examination of history and political philosophy, SPP continues to develop public leaders who consider their "moral sense" upon entering careers in the private sector, nonprofit arena, government, and academia.

Over the years, our most successful and dedicated students are those who have graduated from or participated in respected social science programs and/or like-minded co-curricular fellowships.

To recognize the academic and professional rigor of these programs and fellowships, we are excited to launch the Pepperdine Policy Partners Program—"P4"—making available these benefits to associated applicants:
